Author Info
Gloria Steinem
Gloria Steinem graduated with honors from Smith College in 1956. After that, she went to India on a fellowship to study for a year before returning to the United States, where she worked as a journalist for Glamour and other magazines. One of her most memorable articles, "I Was a Playboy Bunny", written for Show magazine, described training as a Playboy bunny and working as a waitress for male patrons at Hugh Hefner's popular night spot. Steinem was instrumental in launching New York magazine, a bastion of what was then called the New Journalism. She wrote a column called "The City Politic," wherein she covered the personalities and events of the turbulent '60s. She was a participant as well as journalist, becoming involved with the campaigns of such politicians as Robert Kennedy and Shirley Chisholm, attending protests, and joining several pro-labor and feminist organizations. She won the Penney-Missouri Journalism award for her article "After Black Power, Women's Liberation." In 1972 she co-founded Ms. magazine, and became its first editor. She also co-founded the Ms. Foundation for Women. The publication in the '80s of her collected journalism provided a means of reassessing her work--and many critics found an overall coherence in her treatment of a variety of topics ranging from Marilyn Monroe to her own mother. The title of 1992's "Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem" is a fitting description of her concerns of that era. She has been the recipient of many honorary degrees and other awards. In 1998 she wrote a much-discussed article for the New York Times op-ed page, in which she surprised many of her feminist constituents by being mostly sympathetic toward Bill Clinton in regard to the Lewinsky scandal.
