“There's been a lot of effort to demonize the word 'feminist.' I think that being a feminist means that you see the world whole instead of half. It shouldn't need a name. And one day it won't.”
- Gloria Steinem
This discussion guide is designed as a tool for classrom teachers and facilitators to incorporate excerpts of Gloria: In Her Own Words and over four hours of additional footage of conversation with Gloria Steinem. These materials are a moving and meaningful complement to many themes and topics of study, including the history of social movements; gender studies; the history of reproductive rights; self image; civil rights; and the media. The guide contains background information on key figures of the women's movement, historical context, as well as suggested pre- and post- viewing discussion questions and activities.
