An Editor Once Mistook Gloria Steinem’s Feminism For Lesbianism: VIDEO


In an interview with PBS' Makers, American feminist, journalist and activist Gloria Steinem revealed that one of her early editors mistook her for a lesbian because she wrote about gender equality:

An editor, a friend, nice guy (laughs) at Show magazine where I’d been freelancing, after I was writing feminist articles and was identified writing about feminism, he called up several mutual friends and said, “Y’know, I didn’t know that Gloria was a lesbian.” Cause he just couldn’t believe that anybody who wasn’t a lesbian and wasn’t interested in 'getting a man' quote unquote would be interested in equal pay or being treated equally and this was a very nice guy.”
