Gloria Steinem's New Series Addresses Women's Issues as 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.”
