Death, Sex and Money – Ellen Burstyn and Gloria Steinem in conversation
“Today, I’m talking to one of my heroes, Gloria Steinem.” So begins this recent episode of Death, Sex and Money, the podcast which aims to tackle some of the subjects we typically find difficult to discuss. Actress Ellen Burstyn isn’t alone in her admiration of Gloria Steinem, the feminist icon, writer and activist who founded Ms. magazine in 1972. In this episode the two women, now in their 80s, discuss their childhoods, getting older, and the changing face of feminism.
