Gloria Steinem's New Series Shows that Women's Issues are Everyone's Issues

GLORIA STEINEM has traveled the world as a writer and activist her whole life and she firmly believes if we “confront the problems once marginalized as women’s issues, we can tackle the greatest dangers of the 21st century.”  In her new series for Viceland, entitled WOMAN, Steinem explores issues around the world, from women picking up arms to fight for their lives, to young girls being forced out of school to become child brides, to missing women in America and around the world. But one of the most poignant themes of the series is to share the importance of the well-being of women. As Steinem puts it, “From small villages to whole nations, we now know that the well-being of women determines the well-being of society…The greatest indicator of the world’s development and safety is the status of women.”

Howard Dean: The Democratic Wingman of the Democratic Party

This engaging and insightful ATLANTIC article captures all the reasons why former DNC Chairman HOWARD DEAN is one of the most sought-after voices in politics: "It would be difficult to find a more dynamic and well-rounded Democratic political creature than Howard Dean...And now that America is on the precipice of what will inevitably be one of the most polarized and unpredictable general elections in recent history, Dean has become a sought-after political pundit, appearing frequently on cable news and quoted often in print media. In the present political climate, Dean has a unique perspective on his fellow Vermonter, Bernie Sanders; on Hillary Clinton, whom Dean has endorsed; and on the shape of the Democratic electorate itself.
