Happy Birthday, Gloria Steinem!
Today is Gloria Steinem's 80th birthday, and we want to wish her the happiest of happy birthdays!
Last year for Women's History Month, Gloria visited campus to discuss modern day feminism, 40 years after delivering the College's Commencement address in 1973. Most recently, Gloria joined the panel for the event "How Women Become Political," which was co-sponsored by Simmons and the Grimke Event Committee, which celebrated the 175th anniversary of Angelina Grimke's address to the Massachusetts Legislature in 1838.
