Steinem to stump for Quinn

Sneed has learned that iconic feminist Gloria Steinem is coming to Illinois next Friday to stump for Gov. Pat Quinn.

“Steinem is not only going to hit the campaign trail for Quinn, but she will keynote a major fundraiser for him,” a Quinn source said.

◆ The rationale: “The governor has been a strong champion for women, from leading initiatives to strengthen pay equity to signing laws to prevent domestic violence,” a Steinem source said.

Steinem, the wonder woman of the nation’s feminist movement, has been active in social justice for over four decades; co-created Ms. Magazine, wrote four best-selling books, and was married to the late father of actor Christian Bale.
