Free talk discusses gender relationships in the 21st century.
Gloria Steinem is a writer, lecturer, editor, and feminist activist. In 1972, she co-founded Ms. magazine, and remained one of its editors for fifteen years. Ms. Steinem helped to found the Women's Action Alliance, a pioneering national information center that specialized in nonsexist, multiracial children's education, and the National Women's Political Caucus, a group that continues to work to advance the numbers of pro-equality women in elected and appointed office. She was the founding president of the Ms. Foundation for Women, a national multi-racial, multi-issue fund that supports grassroots projects to empower women and girls, and also a founder of its Take Our Daughters to Work Day, a first national day devoted to girls that has now become an institution here and in other countries. In 1993, she was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, New York.
Proud UT Dallas sponsors for this event are The School of Interdisciplinary Studies and Gender Studies, The Galerstein Women's Center, Arts and Humanities, The Multicultural Center, SUABB and The Office of Diversity and Community Engagement.
