WASHINGTON, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Gloria Steinem, feminist activist and founder of Ms. Magazine, will speak at a National Press Club luncheon on Nov. 18. Steinem, who helped create Take Our Daughters to Work Day, will address NPC members on what she feels is still to come for women: the unfinished and the unimagined. She will focus on the "big" things that women still need to do.
Steinem became nationally recognized as a leader of, and media spokeswoman for, the women's liberation movement in the late 1960s and 1970s. A prominent writer and political figure, she was a columnist for New York magazine and has authored several bestsellers including "Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem", "Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions", "Moving Beyond Words", and "Marilyn: Norma Jean", on the life of Marilyn Monroe.
Steinem is one of 16 people President Barack Obama honored this year with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. In her more than 40 years advocating for women's equality, Steinem helped found the Women's Action Alliance, the National Women's Political Caucus and the Women's Media Center.
The Press Club luncheon begins promptly at 12:30 p.m. Remarks will begin at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session, ending at 2 p.m.
