GLORIA

Announcement

On Monday, August 15th at 9pm EST/PST, HBO Documentary Films will premiere a new documentary Gloria Steinem: In Her Own Words. Rarely does such a feminist occasion come along and the Women's Media Center which Gloria co-founded six years ago is using the film as an opportunity to launch an generational discussion about the future of feminism. Gloria uses the film as a rallying cry and asks people to use "their own voices" to plot the next 40 years of feminism.
