The Longest Revolution

April 16, 2009 | Baruch College, CUNY Lecture Series

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem thinks that the fight for equality still has a long way to go. “There is no such thing as being a successful feminist without also being an anti-racist and without standing up for movements of sexual liberation,” said Steinem, a writer and social activist who has spent five decades pursuing equal rights for women. Co-founder of New York magazine and Ms. magazine, she helped launch the Women’s Action Alliance, the National Women’s Political Caucus, and most recently the Women’s Media Center. As part of the Addison Gale Memorial Lecture Series at Baruch College, Steinem addressed existing gender and racial barriers in a talk entitled, “The Longest Revolution.”
