"Sex and the Feminist Revolution"

Activist, journalist, author and editor, Gloria Steinem talked about Sex and the Feminist Revolution at Indiana University Bloomington on February 6, 2003. Ms. Steinem was the keynote speaker for the Kinsey Institute's series, Women's Sexualities: Portrayals and Perspectives. Along with the Kinsey Institute, Ms. Steinem's talk was sponsored by the IUB Chancellor's office, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Indiana Memorial Union Board and WTIU television.

According to Gloria Steinem, "There's nothing more appropriate than talking about the Kinsey Report (Sexual Behavior in the Human Female) and the feminist revolution together because each owes very much to the other.... The presence of reliable and respected study and information really made a huge difference."
