Intergenerational Love, Gloria Steinem Style

2 Aug

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, thank you for championing young feminists, Gloria Steinem!

When asked if she is disappointed to see young women dressing in a provocative way, she said:

This generation of young women is actually much more feminist than we ever were. If you look at the public-opinion polls, they’re actually much more supportive of all of the issues of equality. And my question to the young woman who’s dressing as you describe is: Is she doing it because she wants to? Is she body-proud? Is she sexuality-proud? Then I say great. Is she doing it because she feels she has to? That she won’t be popular otherwise? Then that’s too bad.”

Amen to that! Thanks to Shelby Knox for linking us to this awesome quote.
