Gloria Steinem is a widely known feminist leader, journalist, political activist, lecturer, and founder and editor of Ms. magazine. Before working in the women's movement, Steinem served as an editor for several magazines and wrote freelance articles. She was also active in political and labor causes of the late 1960s. In the early 1970s, she became a feminist activist, and her prolific and popular writing and speaking career made her the most visible feminist of this period. In 1972 Steinem co-founded Ms., and since then, her articles and editorial work have helped to make the magazine an enduring voice of mainstream feminism. Over her three decades of feminist activism, Steinem's articles, books, and lectures have profoundly affected millions of people.
