A leading figure in the global women's rights movement for over four decades, Gloria Steinem was an author, publisher and activist whose work in those fields addressed the numerous inequalities between the sexes, as well as those within class, sexual orientation and political structures. As founder of Ms. magazine, Steinem helped to bring critical attention to such subjects as abortion rights and domestic abuse, while her role as activist led to the formation of such organizations as the Women's Action Alliance, the Coalition of Labor Union Women, the National Women's Political Caucus and countless others, all dedicated to providing women with the tools and information to carry on the fight for equality in their own environments. Throughout her work in various fields, she remained a tireless speaker on social causes throughout the world into her seventh decade, continuing to promote a vision of a world in which an individual's worth was based more on capability than on gender.
