Gloria Steinem, American journalist, political activist, and feminist will deliver a moderated Q&A as part of the Distinguished Lectures Committee’s series at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 10, at the Faulkner Performing Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Steinem began her career as a freelance writer in New York. She first gained recognition for her exposé, published in Show magazine in 1963, recounting her experience as an undercover bunny in Hugh Hefner’s Manhattan Playboy Club. Steinem later worked as a political columnist and feature writer for New York magazine, again commanding national attention for her 1969 piece entitled “After Black Power, Women’s Liberation”.            

Steinem is best known for her role in the women’s liberation movement during the late 20th and early 21st centuries. She co-founded the Women’s Action Alliance and the National Women’s Political Caucus in 1971, Ms. Magazine and the Ms. Foundation for Women in 1972, Voters for Choice in 1979, and the Women’s Media Center in 2004. Author of the bestselling My Life on the Road and recipient of numerous esteemed awards, including the Penney-Missouri Journalism Award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Steinem continues to express her feminist views and advocate for social equality.
