A Letter From the Women’s Media Center on “Gloria Steinem: In Her Own Words” Documentary

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 theWomen’s Media Center which Gloria co-founded six years ago is using the film as an opportunity to launch an intergenerational 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.

We hope that you will send this information out to your members and anyone else who might be interested in the film and the campaign.
