nation’s highest civilian honor, and fellow Women’s Media Center co-founder Robin Morgan stated that, “…rarely has an honor been more deserved. We celebrate this announcement, and Gloria, and the inherent recognition of feminist activism in the ongoing work for women’s full human rights.”
Steinem has made incredible waves in the women’s rights movement throughout her career and her work has made a difference in the lives of millions of women throughout the world; a difference that will go down in history alongside the work of other great women, such as Susan B. Anthony and
Elizabeth Cady Stanton. She is a voice to women and people who believe in equality and human rights, which is unfortunately an ongoing battle in the U.S. society and many other nations throughout the world. Steinem remains a constant inspiration to all the “tough girls” out there; the women who believe that they deserve equality and actively pursue their dreams despite the challenges and
hardships they may face along the way.
“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we
lose excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of
planning.” -Gloria Steinem
