The 2016 MAKERS Conference: Gloria Steinem and America Ferrera

The 2016 MAKERS Conference kicked off Monday night at Terranea Resort, in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.

Feminist writer, activist, and organizer, Gloria Steinem, was joined on stage with award-winning actress, and producer, America Ferrera, for a conversation that ranged in topics from women in Hollywood to the 2016 presidential election.

"This is literally one of those moments where I can't actually get inside of my body," Ferrera began the conversation with Steinem. "Because I cannot believe I'm sitting across from you."
