Steinem’s roots

This piece offers several very quotable paragraphs about Gloria’s discoveries while working as a Playboy Bunny.  She evolved to write:

… and this one has been edited as the result of remaining in print for over a decade while the world has changed.  We need to interview Steinem to get insight into how a woman who could write this could be as dismissive as she was towards Sarah Palin.

Palin describes herself as a feminist but performs as one with incredible acumen!

 

Those whose work formed feminist politics and in many cases, did more harm than good, should learn something from both Sarah and Hillary’s experience.  Most particularly: the ‘power brokers’ of NOW and other “establishment” figures of the advancement of women’s’ interests need that same mirror held up to themselves with their own words super-imposed on their views… posing the question: how could a person who wrote this to motivate women to succeed, take the action we observed during the 2008 election?

  1. Steinem has sold out. In 2008 I lost all respect for her. And for NOW.

    It’s time to move on… to the new Feminism embodied in Sarah Palin, as well as Hillary Clinton. It is, indeed, time for “The New Agenda.”

  2. You are absolutely right! and ler’s not forget the other gloria as well. Alred stood out there next to me marching on the anniversary of the 88th year – then turned right around and backed the Democratic nominee just because he was the finaal candidate,
    since when do we vote the Party over principle?

  3. Emily’s List, Now, Naral are history. Get ready for the new wave of feminism Gloria, we are firing you all.
