Gloria Steinem on Sarah Palin:
From Steinem’s editorial in the Los Angeles Times, “Palin: wrong woman, wrong message”:
This isn’t the first time a boss has picked an unqualified woman just because she agrees with him and opposes everything most other women want and need. Feminism has never been about getting a job for one woman. It’s about making life more fair for women everywhere. It’s not about a piece of the existing pie; there are too many of us for that. It’s about baking a new pie.
Over the summer, I saw Gloria Steinhem on a panel of feminists at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. I think she’s rad and I appreciate her weighing in on Palin & co.
