80 yr old Gloria Steinem is the epitome of feminism and sisterhood.
In her latest interview with Black Enterprise, she discussed the impact black women on the feminist movement.
She said, “I thought they invented the feminist movement. I know we all have different experiences, but I learned feminism disproportionately from black women. I realize that things being what they are, probably the white middle-class part of the movement got reported more. But if you look at the numbers and the very first poll of women thinking about responding on women’s issues, African-American women were twice as likely to support feminism and feminist issues as White women.”
Sweet. In a world where skin color determines the amount of respect you get, Gloria, through such interactions, is spreading the right message amongst her mentees.
