Sellout crowd hears Gloria Steinem in ILS lecture series

International feminist icon and political activist Gloria Steinem spoke before a sellout crowd in Dominican's Angelico Hall on Tuesday afternoon, November 10, as part of the Institute for Leadership Studies' 2015 Fall Leadership Lecture Series in partnership with Book Passage.

Ms. Steinem appeared at Dominican to discuss her memoir, My Life on the Road, her first book in 20 years. As a co-founder and editor of Ms. Magazine, and a renowned writer, decorated activist, and pioneering feminist leader, the 81-year-old Steinem has championed social justice for more than 40 years. In 2013, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.
