Controversial articles on contraception, being a playboy bunny, and abortion
Gloria Steinem gained her rise to prominence in the sixties and seventies as a journalist promoting the women's liberation movement. Her first big article was based on contraception and how women were forced to choose between careers and families. She went on to cover very controversial topics such as abortion, and received positive as well as incredibly negative feedback, including threats on her life.
She has written extensively about feminism, the feminist movement, and women's rights and inequalities.
Including several books, my personal favorite
"Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions"(1983), is a collection of her essays ranging from becoming a playboy bunny to her hilarious take on if men menstruated how the world would work. She continues to write and occasionally serves as an editor at Ms. Magazine which she co-founded in 1972. Her work continues to confront the inequalities women face on a daily basis.
