On March 28, Gloria Steinem visited Stambaugh Stadium to lecture about feminism, freedom and pursuing equality in today’s world. Below are quotes from her sold out appearance.
- “These have been painful, difficult and divisive times. Weneed to keep talking to each other and finding positive solutions but they have also been enormously instructive. If we survive, we will be so much stronger.”
- “I think it’s dangerous in a democracy to have people who don’t represent the majority views of the democracy in power. We see what’s happening and how dangerous it is. We see there has been a fox in charge of every chicken coop.”
- “I have been allowed to be a positive person, I think we see the world as a friendly or unfriendly place, but I suspect that has a lot to do with the way we were raised. One generation of children without violence- who knows? ”
- “Racism on caste or class requires a system, so those systems are intertwined. There’s no such thing as being able to contend with racism without also being a feminist.”
