    Gloria Steinem grew up in her humble Ohio youth into a renowned reporter, leading feminist and, at the end of 20th and the beginning of 21st century one of the most visible, enthusiastic leaders and vocal spokespeople of the women’s rights movement. Steinem, the second son and daughter of Leo and Ruth Steinem, was born on 25 March 1934 in Toledo, Ohio. Her dad worked as a salesman for travelling. His parents split in 1944 and in Toledo he left a young Steinem to look after his poorly mental mother. Steinem began her professional career, publishing freelance works for numerous newspapers as a writer in New York. The fact that men ruled the newsroom and women were mainly relocated to Secretarial and behind-the-scenes research tasks was toughened for women in the last 1950s and 1960s. Steinem’s early papers tended to be for “women’s pages,” lifestyle or service elements, which were then known as nylon stuff, in terms of female-centered subjects or fashion.

    Steinem’s life was devoted to the cause of the rights of women as she conducted demonstrations and traveled over the country as a requested speaker. In 1972, the National Women’s Political Caucus was created by Steinem, feminist Congresswoman Bella Abzug, Ms. Shirley Chisholm, and Ms. Betty Friedan. It continues to promote gender equality and ensure that more women are elected to public office on an equal footing. She was also a leader in the women’s movement in 1969 in Steinem’s essay “Following Black power, women’s liberation.” The ’70s amendment to Equal Rights was aimed at promoting legal gender equality and preventing discrimination on the basis of sex. The Senate adopted the momentous amendment but, after a Conservative backlash at the heart of Mrs. America, the minimum number of states failed to ratify it.

    Steinem is a famous proponent of freedom of reproduction but the problem also goes hand in hand. At the age of 22, she was pregnant and in London in 1957 tried to get an abortion before it would be allowed for England. She was inspired to speak years later about her experience in an abortion. In 2020, where is Gloria Steinem? Naturally, she continues to work untiringly. When she was 86, Steinem called hopeaholic and didn’t give up her light. Steinem regularly makes statements and comments on current events, from the #MeToo movement to the President of Trump.
