She's the queen mother of second-wave feminism. Gloria Steinem played an essential role in the rise of the feminist movement during the 1960s and '70s. Not to mention, she co-founded New York magazine and Ms. Magazine! Gloria has been choosing to challenge inequities for the last five decades, and we cannot thank her enough for the boundaries she's broken and the inspiration she has instilled in generations of women. Steinem has dedicated her life to the fight for equality, earning her the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2013! Gloria, you inspire us every day!
