Gloria Steinem Talk
I heard a great speech by Gloria Steinem at UCF today. Many feminists, including Steinem, initially fought for elimination of the women's pages and several later changed their minds. For example, Steinem said in 1972, “I have come back full circle in that I now feel the value of the women’s pages.” The problem was that by the time Steinem and others had reversed course, most women’s page editors had been demoted or left the newspaper.
