Happy Birthday, Gloria!
This blog is a grateful tip of the hat to the brave, smart, and always stylish wonder of a woman: Gloria Steinem. Today she turns 75.
She told the NY Daily News the following yesterday:
“Women and girls no longer feel crazy, alone or flying in the face of nature if they have the outrageous idea that they should be treated as full human beings,” the feminist leader and social activist told The News Tuesday. “Knowing that the system is crazy, not you, is a huge leap forward.”
Thank you, Gloria.

Great quote. I'm glad a great portion of the battle was fought before my time. But there is always another battle to fight, it seems.
Tip of the hat, indeed!

An icon and great activist!!
And I 'heart' her style, too!
Thank you, Gloria!!
