Cooper Union hosts the extraordinary cast and creators of The Glorias, the new biopic about Gloria Steinem, to discuss how women overcome differences to question structures of power and find ways of uniting around meaningful action, along with stories from the making of the movie. Directed and produced by Julie Taymor, from a screenplay by Taymor and Sarah Ruhl, The Glorias is based upon My Life on the Road by the trailblazing writer, political activist, and feminist organizer Gloria Steinem.
