This chapter focuses on Gloria Steinem and how she arranged for the author to have lunch with Marlo Thomas. In those days, Gloria was one of the few women doing serious advocacy journalism. She was also a nationally known spokesperson for the civil rights, antiwar, and women's movements. The previous summer, Gloria had asked the author to join her in starting a magazine that eventually would be called Ms., a feminist enterprise so committed to its egalitarian, nonhierarchical structure that the author could never have admitted how thrilled she was to be working at a desk just feet away from Thomas's. The truth is, she would have done anything Thomas asked.

Keywords:   Gloria Steinem, Marlo Thomas, advocacy journalism, civil rights, women's movements, feminist enterprise
