This Is What Eighty Looks Like

Gloria Steinem

ON Tuesday, Gloria Steinem turns 80.

Do not bother to call. She’s planning to celebrate in Botswana. “I thought: ‘What do I really want to do on my birthday?’ First, get out of Dodge. Second, ride elephants.”

Very few people have aged as publicly. It’s been four decades since she told a reporter, “This is what 40 looks like.”…….

Read more about this fascinating woman who has valiantly fought against discrimination of women for six decades. She is truly someone who believes in the empowerment of women (and all people). This is a great article about her.
