E2S2 Gloria Steinem

Gloria Steinem is a household name in the United States, yet she is less known in France. Some might even call her the Simone de Beauvoir of America. We were fortunate to have Gloria and her friend, Robin Morgan, curate our annual Festival Albertine in 2017––an event that gathered the most relevant feminists on both sides of the Atlantic. It was radical, exciting, and very political. And Gloria’s kindness, openness, and authenticity really shined through. 

In this episode, we discussed the difference between French and American feminism (7:25), what advice Gloria would give to her 20-year-old self (29:41), and about the idea of Paris as a village (4:50).
