The Politics of Sex

Gloria Steinem on Sexism and Racism

In a speech from back in 1973 that continues to be all too relevant today, Gloria Steinem, feminist and co-founder of Ms. Magazine, speaks about deep-seeded sexism and racism in America at the College of Marin. She instructs the audience on the importance of organizing, discusses the origins of political subjugation of women, and encourages women
to overcome differences to work together against ruling-class divide and conquer strategies.
Recorded by Katy Butler and produced by Laurie Simms.
