Gloria Steinem

April 13, 2009

I started a new painting today. This one’s subject is Gloria Steinem and her Address to the Women of America on July 10, 1971, at the founding of the National Women’s Political Caucus. This would become one of the era’s most memorable speeches; delivered at the height of the Women’s Movement, it is considered one of the twentieth century’s greatest speeches.

Rainy days are so perfect for painting. Below are some pictures of the work in progress.
