Gloria Marie Steinem – amerykańska feministka, dziennikarka, założycielka feministycznego magazynu Ms. Autorka artykułu „After Black Power, Women’s Liberation”. Pracowała dla CIA jako szpieg.

Steinem urodziła się w 1934 roku w stanie Ohio. Jej matka pochodziła z rodziny szkocko-niemieckiej, a ojciec był niemiecko-polskim Żydem. Gdy Steinem miała 10 lat, rodzice rozwiedli się. Po studiach wyjechała na dwa lata na stypendium do Indii, a później, w Stanach, pracowała w Niezależnym Ośrodku Badań, instytucji państwowej, która realizowała zlecenia m.in. CIA. Od początku lat 60. Steinem zaczęła zajmować się dziennikarstwem i na tym polu od razu odniosła sukces. Jeszcze przed książką Betty Friedan „Mistyka kobiecości” napisała cykl artykułów o tym, co przeszkadza kobietom godzić pracę zawodową z życiem domowym. Redaktorzy pism, z którymi współpracowała, nie od razu zaakceptowali jej proemancypacyjne, feministyczne nastawienie. Rozgłos przyniósł jej artykuł o pracy „króliczków” z klubów Playboya. Żeby napisać go kompetentnie, Steinem zatrudniła się w jednym z takich klubów. Było to w 1963 roku. Dwadzieścia lat później na podstawie jej historii powstał film.

Równolegle do swojej kariery dziennikarskiej Gloria Steinem angażowała się w powstający wówczas ruch feministyczny. Szybko stała się jedną z najbardziej rozpoznawalnych twarzy tego ruchu. Razem z Betty Friedan i Bellą Abcug poprowadziła w 1970 roku w Nowym Jorku ogromny, ogólnokrajowy marsz kobiet na rzecz równości.

Powstanie pisma „Ms.” połączyło obie pasje Steinem: dziennikarstwo i feminizm. Była jedną z założycielek najbardziej znanego pisma feministycznego w Stanach. Po raz pierwszy pismo to ukazało się w 1972 roku jako specjalne wydanie „New York Magazine”. Świetnie się sprzedało i w krótkim czasie zaprenumerowało je 26 tysięcy osób. Steinem pisała do „Ms.” do 1987 roku, do czasu, gdy pismo zmieniło wydawców. Ponownie związała się z pismem w 2001 roku, gdy wydawanie pisma przejęła współzałożona przez nią Fundacja Feministycznej Większości.

Gloria Steinem jest nadal aktywną uczestniczką ruchu feministycznego i komentatorką bieżących wydarzeń. Napisano już dwie jej biografie, powstał film o jej życiu.

„Regarding the idea that the women’s movement is white and middle class — a fair share of the country is white and middle class.“

— Gloria Steinem
Context: Regarding the idea that the women’s movement is white and middle class — a fair share of the country is white and middle class. And certainly, there are racist white women. Certainly, there are sexist black men. All those things are true. But the other thing that’s never said is that black women are much more likely to support feminist issues than white women. It makes sense because they’re much more likely to be on the paid labor force than white women. And if you’ve experienced discrimination for one reason, you’re probably more likely to recognize it for another reason.

„The men I’ve met who were the best allies of feminism are those who see their stake in it; who see that they themselves are being limited by a culture that deprives men of human qualities deemed feminine, which are actually just the qualities necessary to raise kids — empathy and attention to detail and patience.“

— Gloria Steinem
Context: The men I’ve met who were the best allies of feminism are those who see their stake in it; who see that they themselves are being limited by a culture that deprives men of human qualities deemed feminine, which are actually just the qualities necessary to raise kids — empathy and attention to detail and patience. Men have those qualities too but they’re not encouraged to develop them. And so they miss out on raising their kids, and they actually shorten their own lives. When men realize that feminism is a universal good that affects them in very intimate ways then I think they really become allies and leaders.

„Believing in the full social, political, and economic quality of women, which is what the dictionary says "feminism" means, is enough to make a revolution in itself.“

— Gloria Steinem
Context: I'm not sure feminism should require an adjective. Believing in the full social, political, and economic quality of women, which is what the dictionary says "feminism" means, is enough to make a revolution in itself. But if I had to choose only one adjective, I still would opt for radical feminist. I know patriarchs keep equating that word with violent or man-hating, crazy or extremist — though being a plain vanilla feminist doesn't keep one safe from such epithets either, nor does "I'm not a feminist, but..." Nonetheless, radical seems an honest indication of the fundamental change we have in mind and says what probably is the case: the false division of human nature into “feminine” and “masculine” is the root of all other divisions into subject and object, active and passive — the beginning of hierarchy. Part 6 : Doing Sixty, p. 270

„Logic has nothing to do with oppression.“

— Gloria Steinem
Context: As the little boy said when asked if he wanted to be a lawyer like his mother, "Oh no, that's women's work." Logic has nothing to do with oppression. Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions (1983), p. 367

„I can’t think of anything more crucial than real Republicans taking back the GOP.“

— Gloria Steinem
Context: This war against women started a long time ago with old Democrats who took over the Republican Party, which was, before that, the very first to support the Equal Rights Amendment. Even when the National Women’s Political Caucus started, there was a whole Republican feminist entity. But beginning with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, right-wing Democrats like Jesse Helms began to leave the Democratic Party and gradually take over the GOP. So I always feel I have to apologize to my friends who are Republicans because they’ve basically lost their party. Ronald Reagan couldn’t get nominated today because he was supportive of immigrant rights. Barry Goldwater was pro-choice. George H. W. Bush supported Planned Parenthood. No previous Republicans except for George W. Bush would be acceptable to the people who now run the GOP. They are not Republicans. They are the American version of the Taliban. … They’ve taken over one of our two great parties. This causes people to wrongly think that the country is equally divided but if we look at the public opinion polls, it isn’t. So, I can’t think of anything more crucial than real Republicans taking back the GOP.

„Look, you didn’t leave your party. The party left you.“

— Gloria Steinem
Context: I think feminists and progressive Democrats err when they accusingly say to Republican women, “How can you be a Republican?” Nobody responds to that. But if you say, “Look, you didn’t leave your party. The party left you. Let’s just look at the issues and see what they are and forget about party labels and vote for ourselves,” I think people would really respond.

„This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution.“

— Gloria Steinem
Context: This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution. Sex and race, because they are easy, visible differences, have been the primary ways of organizing human beings into superior and inferior groups, and into the cheap labor on which this system still depends. We are talking about a society in which there will be no roles other than those chosen, or those earned. We are really talking about humanism. "Address to the Women of America" (10 July 1971)

„I think we all have the power to name ourselves. I try to call people what it is they wish to be called.“

— Gloria Steinem
Context: I think most social justice movements take the words that are used against them and make them good words. That’s partly how “black” came back into usage. Before we said “colored person,” or “Negro.” Then came “Black Power,” “Black Pride,” and “Black Is Beautiful” to make it a good word. "Witch" was another word I remember reclaiming in the 1970s. There was a group called Women’s International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell (WITCH). They all went down to Wall Street and hexed it. And Wall Street fell five points the next day; it was quite amazing! “Queer” and “gay” are other examples. … I think we all have the power to name ourselves. I try to call people what it is they wish to be called. But we can take the sting out of epithets and bad words by using them. Actually, I had done that earlier with “slut” because when I went back to Toledo, Ohio, which is where I was in high school and junior high school, I was on a radio show with a bunch of women. A man called up and called me “a slut from East Toledo,” which is doubly insulting because East Toledo is the wrong side of town. I thought, when I’d lived here I would have been devastated by this. But by this time I thought, you know, that’s a pretty good thing to be. I’m putting it on my tombstone: "Here lies the slut from East Toledo."
