From co-founding Ms. Magazine to posing undercover as a Playboy Bunny, Gloria Steinem is, and will always be, protest girl extraordinaire. Though her hair may have grayed with 77 years of activism and antiestablishment essays, Ms. Steinem’s still got that mutinous gleam in her eye, that scintillating dissident sparkle. Tonight, she discusses her global travels at the 92Y, describing her cross-cultural adventures to a roomful of lustful third-wave feminists and Gynocritics. Pining for a time when feminism, not #Occupy or Iran, was at the forefront of our collective social sentience, the indebted audience will celebrate the crown queen of the feminist dialectic. Bras optional, of course.
Gloria Steinem With Budd Mishkin, 92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Avenue, 8 p.m. Tickets, from $29.00, available at http://www.92y.org.
