What do Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lady Gaga have in common? This Master Class looks at the long struggle for women’s rights, a story touching every aspect of life, including politics, economics, religion and race. We have made great progress toward equality, but each victory has revealed new obstacles, complications, and even complacency. How have the terms of debate shifted? What is the way forward? In a wide-ranging discussion, we will explore battles past and consider the current struggle for full equality.

Gloria Steinem changed the world. A writer and activist involved in feminist and other social justice movements for over forty years, Steinem co-founded Ms. magazine and the National Women’s Political Caucus and remains one of the most visible and outspoken symbols of the women’s movement today. Her books include Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions; Marilyn: Norma Jean; Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem; and Doing Sixty and Seventy. She was recently the subject of the HBO documentary, Gloria: In Her Own Words.
