Gloria Steinem keeps up her work for feminism at age 79

April 3, 2013

Meet Gloria Steinem
On March 25, Gloria Steinem celebrated her 79th birthday. Read about her and watch this brief video (two and a half minutes long), posted on the Open Road Integrated Media website. In the video, she talks about changes for women over her lifetime and also about feminism today. She says that people seem surprised she is still working for women’s equality after all these years and ask why she doesn’t retire. (I say Amen to her answer!) Related material:  You might also want to view another short video, “Faces of Feminism,” a feature posted on the Open Road site during Women’s History Month, which ended this past Sunday. Since women’s history actually never ends (because we’re still making it), this link continues its relevance.

Letha Dawson Scanzoni
Letha Dawson Scanzoni (1935-2024) was an independent scholar, writer, and editor, and the author or coauthor of nine books. In 1978, she and Virginia Ramey Mollenkott wrote Is the Homosexual My Neighbor?, one of the earliest books urging evangelical Christians to rethink their views on homosexuality (updated edition, 1994, HarperOne). More recently, Letha coauthored (with social psychologist David G. Myers) What God Has Joined Together: The Christian Case for Gay Marriage (HarperOne, 2005 and 2006). Another of Letha’s most well-known books is All We’re Meant to Be: Biblical Feminism for Today, coauthored with Nancy A. Hardesty (Word Books, 1974; revised edition, Abingdon, 1986; updated and expanded edition, Eerdmans, 1992). Letha served as editor of Christian Feminism Today in both its former print edition (EEWC Update) and its website for 19 years until her retirement in December 2013.
