Gloria Steinem’s inspiration to switch from journalism to activism is a great reminder that what we personally experience is rarely unique to us but is often universal. When we come together, we can affect change. I think it’s so human, certainly so female, that our first reaction when we experience something difficult is that we are alone. Yet, as a member of 51% of the population, I think it’s safe to say we are not and that there are women who will stand by us as we stand by them.
In honor of Women’s History Month, thank you Gloria Steinem for leading and helping raise the profile for women’s activism! Where I am today is thanks to amazing women like you.
