Gloria: In Her Own Words - Documentary Screening and Discussion

Description

Join us for a viewing of Gloria: In Her Own Words, produced by Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker Peter Kunhardt and Sheila Nevins; directed by Peter Kunhardt for HBO.  Gloria Steinem remains one of the most outspoken and visible symbols of the women's movement today. This documentary blends interviews of Steinem with archival footage, and clips from other prominant women's movement figures like National Organization for Women (NOW) co-founder Betty Friedan, congresswoman Bella Abzug and civil rights advocate Flo Kennedy.  At the front lines of social activism and the public face of the women's rights movement, Steinem co-founded Ms. Magazine in 1972 because at the time "there was nothing for women to read that was controlled by women."  

Gloria: In Her Own Words chronicles Steinem's life and her emergence as a driving force in the modern women's liberation movement.  The screening is free and open to the public, but we ask that you RSVP here.  Following the documentary screening there will be light appetizers and drinks over a guided discussion.  This event is part of the series of winter quarter events organized as part of Ms. @ 40 and the Future of Feminism.
