Interview with Gloria Steinem in The Guardian.
“What is frustrating,” Steinem says now, “is being told that no matter how hard I’ve worked, it counts less than my appearance. Although if you’re not considered conventionally attractive, that also becomes an issue: you know, you’re a feminist because you couldn’t get a man.” Still, there is a part of her that doesn’t like getting older. “You become less visible. You become a category rather than an individual – an Older Woman.”
