Abstract:

The Gloria Steinem Papers provide a very complete picture of the public and personal aspects of an important feminist leader's life, but there is much more here than the raw material for her biography. The correspondence, writings, speeches, subject files, memorabilia, photographs, and other papers document the movement from the standpoint of not only the movers and shakers, but also the individual women at the grass roots level, whose letters to Steinem indicate the ways that they responded to her as a symbol of the changes they were experiencing in their own lives. The papers reflect the diversity of the modern women's movement because of Steinem's ability to form productive alliances with women of different races and classes. Documents her friendships and political work with pioneering African-American feminists such as Shirley Chisholm, Florynce Kennedy and Dorothy Pitman Hughes; lesbian authors and activists Andrea Dworkin and Kate Millett; and labor organizers such as the United Farmworkers' Dolores Huerta and Karen Nussbaum of SEIU, District 925. Papers related to Steinem's role in founding the Women's Action Alliance provide additional source material for studying attempts by the women's movement to stress the commonalities of women across race and class. Her importance as a founder, editor, and key fund-raiser for Ms. magazine make this collection central to any study of late 20th century journalism.
