Feminist Flashback: Gloria Steinem on Meet the Press in 1972 (Video)

Two women on Meet the Press? Isn't that some kind of record? But this is a great find from the good old days when the patriarchal status quo was actually discussed on mainstream teevee. Thank you, Gloria Steinem! And Happy Women's History Month to all of us!

"I do think Hillary Clinton's candidacy changed the atmosphere. I never for a moment thought a woman could win. It's too soon. But I do think that her candidacy made it possible for many more people to imagine a woman president. How she got up every morning and took that much punishment, I don't know. She was so strong."
