Gloria Steinam


Saved in drafts from Q1 2006:
My new resurgence of feminism’s happened only because of my marriage. It isn’t anything new, the whole world and all women have been through this, but everyone of us needs to learn it afresh.

Here, Elisabeth Bumiller quotes Gloria Steinem on the important ‘radicalizing’ changes in a woman’s life:

‘The first is when she enters the labor force and discovers that men, by and large, still control th workplace. The second is when she marries and learsn that marriage is not yet a completely equal partenrship. The thrid is when she has children and finds out who is [sic] the principal child-rearer. And the fourth is when she ages, which still involves greater penalties for women than for men’.

Steinem says “As students women are probably treated with more equality than we ever will be again. The school is only too glad to get the tutions we pay”.
