Steinem

Famous quotes containing the word steinem:

    The authority of any governing institution must stop at its citizens’ skin.
    —Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)

    For women ... bras, panties, bathing suits, and other stereotypical gear are visual reminders of a commercial, idealized feminine image that our real and diverse female bodies can’t possibly fit. Without these visual references, each individual woman’s body demands to be accepted on its own terms. We stop being comparatives. We begin to be unique.
    —Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)

    ... the art of politics is to be ahead of your time—about six months will do it. Any more than that, and people forget you were there.
    —Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)
