Gloria Steinem visits CASA

Few people have done as much work in their lifetime to shake up the status quo and consistently speak out for women’s rights around the world as Gloria Steinem. My Life on the Road (October 2015, Random House) will be Gloria’s first book in twenty years and it will be "a candid account of how her early years led her to an on-the-road kind of life traveling, listening to people, learning, and creating change.” We are eager to read her reflections "on how the most transformative ideas sometimes come from the most unexpected people and encounters,”  

CASA was honored to be one of the many places that Gloria has visited. In January Gloria Steinem was welcomed to CASA with a tour of the campus, the maternity center and a reception with students.  We recently caught up with Gloria about her thoughts on her visit earlier this year to CASA.

 "Controlling women has always and only been about controlling reproduction -- about producing ever more workers and soldiers. Only when each woman re-gains power over her own body -- a power she had before patriarchal Europeans conquered these Americas -- will she again be healthy and free. Only then will we begin to save this Space Ship Earth that we love so much. It was my pleasure to recently visit CASA in Mexico and the organization is doing exactly the on-the-ground work that women need. Help CASA help us all.”
