Gloria Steinem

1934-

Feminist Activist

Journalist and feminist activist Gloria Steinem began her career as a freelance writer for magazines such as Esquire and Vogue. She was a founding member of the National Women's Political Caucus and soon became one of the women's movement's most visible and articulate spokespeople.

She founded Ms. magazine, the world's most successful feminist-oriented publication, in 1971, and served as its editor before moving on to other projects. In recent years, she has renewed her connection to Ms., returning as head of a new ownership group.
