Marlo Thomas Salutes Gloria Steinem

Marlo Thomas, Gloria Steinem and Liz Smith at Sirius XM

On the eve of the HBO Documentary, “Gloria, In Her Own Words”

Tonight I’ll be watching the HBO documentary “Gloria: In Her Own Words“, celebrating my dear friend, Gloria Steinem.  And I know that I will sit back and marvel, all over again, at the consistency of this remarkable woman.

I’ve written a piece about Gloria and our friendship, to help celebrate Gloria and her tremendous achievements. I hope you enjoy it.

Also, listen here to a clip of the upcoming wowOwow Radio show on Sirius XM radio where Liz and I sat down with Gloria.

    Really nice piece written for your friend Marlo, glimpses into the non-celebrity side of life are one of the treasures of WOW. Perceptions of Gloria Steinem by people such as my own mother were more distorted by a fear of what they did not understand, then caring to open up to another point of view.

    I so enjoyed the HBO documentary on Ms Steinem. While I have always described myself as a feminist and raised a feminist son I had forgotten how much Gloria meant to me.The intelligence and genuineness just shines through this woman and is inspiring. I hope she does live to be 100!

    As someone who came of age in the late sixties/early seventies, I remember the tremendous impact Ms. Steinem, Ms. Thomas, and their female colleagues had on American society. It troubles me that today, so many young women enjoy the fruits of feminism but abhor the term “feminist.” Perhaps documentaries like this one, and articles like Ms. Thomas’s, will help those women understand how far we have come—and how far we still need to go.
