"On behalf of The Kinsey Institute, I thank you for the wonderful lecture you delivered at Indiana University. Your talk on 'Sex and the Feminist Revolutivon' provided the perfect keynote for our yearlong anniversary event series, 'Women's Sexualities: Portrayals and Perspectives.' The IU Auditorium reports that there were over 3,100 in attendance. I was particularly impressed with the generational range of our audience and their obvious receptivity to the substance of the ideas you articulated. From high school students through people in their eighties, you spoke to all - and they are still talking about it. Your generosity of spirit shines as brightly as the strength and wisdom of your words."
-Nancy Lethem, Director of Development, The Kinsey Institute
"The Steinem lecture was a HUGE success! Thank you so much for your help in bringing her to Indiana University.

"We consider your visit to Ball State University a most significant event in the Women's Studies Program's history. Without doubt or comparison, you are the most accessible and gracious guest we have had the privilege to meet. Now, nearly two months after your visit, we are still receiving comments about the impact your visit and presentation made on students, faculty, staff, and members of the local community."

"We were truly honored to present Ms. Steinem at this event. She was energetic yet eloquent, passionate and powerful. She brought tears to the eyes of many who were present, so much so that many of the almost 1,200 people who came signed up to get involved in our important work. She was a huge draw! She was on topic, seemed very passionate about our mission and encouraged everyone there to take a stand and make a difference. Would you believe we raised $329,000 at the Breakfast?!!!! It was our most successful Women's Breakfast to date!!! The funds raised will go towards the programs and services we provide to homeless children and families throughout Massachusetts."
-Colette O'Neill, Communications Specialist, Horizons for Homeless Children

-Deborah Sacarakis, Lehigh University
"[Gloria Steinem] was such a wonderful speaker and just exudes this positive, intelligent, open-minded, witty spirit and energy!!! I'm just so glad that I had the opportunity to be in her company for the dinner and listen to her talk. Purely fantastic (she just makes you think outside the box)!"
-Jennifer Muller, Programs/Outreach Secretary, Lehigh University
"Your talk was very well received by our audience and, I learned later, became the springboard for lots of discussion at the conference about what it means to be a public as well as private healer and the connection between therapy and social justice work. All I can say is mission accomplished."
-Richard Smith, President, Psychotherapy Networker

-- Susan Sarfati, President & CEO, Greater Washington Society of Association Executives
"The feedback that we received has been fabulous and encourages us for the coming years. Additionally, we are proud to say that we raised money in this first year. Ultimately, this translates to college grants and scholarships to be awarded by The Women’s Business Foundation. This, on top of the fabulous energy of the day, is a splendid bonus."
-Christie Doherty, Steering Committee Chair -- Marty Lassen, Steering Committee, Speakers & Curriculum Rocky Mountain Women’s Success Forum
"Your insights and sharing were a valuable contribution. Without such generous and thoughtful participation, the Forum would have been 'just another conference.' Thank you for being a part of something special – it means the world to us.
Your ideas have stayed with us and will continue to help us articulate our world views and challenge the established narratives and explanations for the way things are. Hopefully people will take your message and help others realize what can happen if we don’t keep working to tear down the prejudices inherent in our social system."

Your presentation truly resonated with our audience and I am confident that all who attended left with a greater understanding of the women's movement in the 1960's and into today. "

She was warm and comfortable with our audience of about 100 educational technology professionals from the New York suburban area. Thank you for making this outstanding experience possible."
-Annette Safer, Lower Hudson Regional Information Center
“Everything was great with Ms. Steinem's appearance at our event - she was engaging, inspiring, and clearly charged our audience with the message we wanted them to hear. I know that her participation on our "movement-building" panel was a highlight for many attendees, and heard from our staff that Ms. Steinem was particularly gracious and friendly even when she wasn't on stage. We absolutely appreciate having such great speakers at this important event for us. Please pass along our gratitude.”
–Teach for America
"On behalf of the nearly 11,000 alumni, corps members, supporters, and staff who attended Teach for America's 20th Anniversary Summit, I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for the important role you played in making this event such a success. It was such a humbling and energizing experience to gather in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the progress of the last twenty years and to reflect together on what more we can do to realize our shared vision of educational excellence and equity. The energy of the Summit continues to spill over and forward as attendees and others in our network commit to the role they will play in maximizing our collective impact, and I believe that our time in D.C. - and the reflection, commitments, and actions that the Summit spawns - will help move us closer to the day when all children in our nation have the opportunity to attain an excellent education."
