The life of Gloria Steinem

Journalist

Steinem studied government in college, “a non-traditional choice for a woman at that time” (“Gloria Steinem Biography”). After college, she became a freelance writer. One of her early articles showed her budding interest in feminist topics. It was written for Glamour magazine and called "The Student Princess ( or How to Seize Power on the Campus of Your Choice)" (Duan). One of her most famous articles was for Show magazine. Steinem went undercover as a bunny in New York City's Playboy Club ("Gloria Steinem Biography"). She exposed that "even beyond just being objectified, Bunnies were making far lower wages than advertised" (Duan). However, it wasn't until "after reporting on an abortion hearing given by the radical feminist group known as the Redstockings" that she became more interested in women's rights and began writing essays like "After Black Power, Women's Liberation" ("Gloria Steinem Biography").
