Synopsis: Gloria: In Her Own Words blends interviews, press clippings, photographs and archival footage to chronicle Gloria Steinem’s emergence as a driving force in the modern women’s liberation movement. In its portrayal of Steinem’s rocky road from a journalist to one of the most visible symbols of the women’s movement today, the documentary features footage of prominent activists from Betty Friedan to Bella Abzug to Flo Kennedy and covers some of the most crucial issues facing women in recent decades through the eyes of one of its most courageous leaders.
This screening is underwritten by the generosity of Whitewater Films in memory of Hinda Gould Rosenthal.
