The ABC's for Bad Ass B'z: G

The ABC's for Bad Ass B'z:
G is for Gloria Steinem

As a freshman in high school, I lived in this bubble, I had a very basic understanding of the world, but it wasn't until my Thinking Women class taught by my professor Kristie McEwan, that I really began to think differently.

We learned about Gloria Steinem and boy was I in awe.

If you have been living under a weird misogynistic rock and you have no clue who Gloria Steinem is let me teach you a little something.

Gloria Steinem is an american feminist, investive journalist, a social and political activist and is recognized as the leader and media spokeswoman for the women's liberation movement in the last 60's and 70's. She founded organizations a-plenty, received many awards, and wrote many articles being published New York magazine and Ms. magazine. She worked along side Jane Fonda and RObin Morgan to cofound the Women's Media Center, an organization to empower women through their voice in the media. After years and YEARS of being awesome, she still has a presence in politics and in women's rights being a commentator, writer, lecturer and organizer campaigning for candidates and reforms as well as publishing books and articles

GLORIA STEINEM IS THE BOMB.

There is SO much to talk about when discussing this incredible lady, but if I begin, I fear you won't be able to stop me.

"Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human 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."

Here is some advice for young girls 

Have a great day, and Please keep it sassy,
