WATCH: Gloria Steinem's Advice to Young Women from the 92 St Y MAKERS Event
In the spirit of Women's History Month, MAKERS Gloria Steinem, Amy Richards, Anu Bhagwati and Reshma Saujani and Executive Producers Betsy West and Dyllan McGee participated in a lively panel before a packed house at the 92nd St Y in New York City last week.
Moderated by Richards, the conversation looked both backwards and forwards, touching on the issues in the film, the struggles for women in the past, the pressures and issues for women today, and thoughts on where we go from here from a group of women who were multigenerational, multicultural, and who have succeeded in careers ranging from activism to filmmaking to politics to the armed forces.
When asked by an audience member to share some advice for young people to describe feminism, Gloria Steinem had a very simple response. Check out the video below.
