Gloria Steinem

Gloria Steinem is a leader in the feminist movement, even dubbed the “Mother of Feminism.” She’s been actively fighting for transgender rights, reproductive rights, LGBT rights, and women’s rights for decades- a champion of feminism and equality between all. She understands how women are viewed in this world, and is working to change that.

"‪”Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That’s their natural and first weapon. She will need her sisterhood.”"

She’s been an inspiration to many and continues the fight as an activist, organizer, author, and lecturer. She’s had best sellers and cofounded two magazines. Articles of hers can be found in magazines and newspapers across the world. Videos of her speeches are life changing, worldly, and encouraging.

The iconic image of her in the 1970s would make an incredible costume. Go out and get some bell bottomed jeans. Buy some round, colored glasses. Carry around a poster that says “We shall overcome,” and you’ll be undeniably Gloria Steinem.
