".....you've found even more treasures.
Without you there with heart and camera, so much would have been lost.
With friendship,
Gloria"

Gloria Steinem co-founded Ms. Magazine in 1972 with Patricia Carbine.

Today most people don't know what the term Ms. means.

But in 1974 it had entered the dictionary and there was a demonstration in front of the NY Times

to pressure them to adopt the term MS. Women for Changing the Times, an employee pressure group,

and Majority Report helped organize the protest of sexism at the Times.

The "progressive" paper adopted it in 1986. See how disingenuous:

 

Below: More Photographs of Gloria Steinem, at the First National Women's Conference in Houston,

serving as Commissioner of the President's Commission on the Observance of International Women's Year.

"For myself, Houston and all the events surrounding it have become a personal landmark in history;

the sort of event one measures all other dates in life as being ‘before’ or ‘after.’"

For more of her words about the event, see:

Gloria Steinem spoke at the exhibit of Diana Mara Henry's photographs for the 35th anniversary of the conference, 2012
