On Tuesday, April 30, The Women’s Resource of Greater Houston presents Gloria Steinem, writer, lecturer, editor and feminist activist, as the featured speaker at the organization’s 22nd Annual Luncheon. The event will be held at the JW Marriott from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Ms. Steinem returns to Houston, a city that is a landmark in the history of the feminist movement. In the essay, ‘Houston and History,’ from her book Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, Ms. Steinem says, “For myself, Houston and all the events surrounding it have become a landmark in personal history … Figuring out the date of any other event now means remembering: Was it before or after Houston?” Ms. Steinem will discuss the progression of feminism and advancing the rights of all women. Her talk will be followed by an audience Q&A.

A limited number of interviews will be available after Ms. Steinem’s appearance on Tuesday, April 30. For more information, contact LaTanya Flix at lflix@thewomensresource.org or Sunny McKinnon at mckinnons@sbcglobal.net

 

The Women’s Resource of Greater Houston was founded in 1990 to provide free financial education and research so that women and girls have the knowledge they need to make sound financial decisions and improve their lives. For more information, visit www.thewomensresource.org.
