Gloria: A Life "Act Two". Discussion moderated by Jamia Wilson.

An Off-Broadway Play

Based on the extraordinary life of Gloria Steinem, Gloria: A Life weaves together events from her 50 years in social and political activism. Starting from her early years as an audacious reporter and as a founder of Ms. Magazine, the play features personal stories of the people who inspired her, leading to her evolution into a woman who has inspired generations.

From the New York Times:

"The first act will be a six-character bio-play about her life and career as a feminist writer and activist; the second act will be a facilitated “talking circle” that includes the audience and a moderator."
