Gloria Steinem is a writer, political activist and feminist whose life has been dedicated to the cause of women’s rights. Steinem started her professional career as a journalist in New York and in 1968 she helped found New York magazine, where she became an editor and political writer. She later co-founded and became the editor of Ms. magazine, the first magazine that covered issues of women rights and movements in the United States (rather than articles on housekeeping). In 1972, Steinem and feminists such as Congresswoman Bella Abzug, Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, and feminist Betty Friedan formed the National Women’s Political Caucus. It continues to support gender equality and to ensure the election of more pro-equality women to public office. Many other important organizations dealing with women's equal rights has Gloria Steinem as co-founder. In 2013 Gloria Steinem received from President Barack Obama the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest honor awarded to civilians
