Congratulate Gloria Steinem on Receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom

Ms. Foundation for Women co-founder Gloria Steinem will be presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama on Nov. 20. She joins such esteemed honorees as Toni Morrison and Helen Keller in receiving the nation’s highest civilian honor.

The Ms. Foundation couldn’t be prouder! In its announcement, the White House noted that Gloria has helped launch many organizations dedicated to advancing civil rights – organizations like the Ms. Foundation for Women, which she co-founded 40 years ago alongside Patricia Carbine, Letty Cottin Pogrebin and Marlo Thomas.

Today, we carry their vision forward by investing funds, time, expertise and training in more than 100 trailblazing organizations nationwide. We remain committed to eliminating the barriers to every woman’s health, safety and economic well-being.

Help us congratulate Gloria! Show your appreciation for her contributions to the women’s movement. We’ll collect your sentiments and share them with her following the event.
