Gloria Steinem
Writer and feminist activist

I feel true power when... "I hear someone say that anything I did or said or wrote helped to change her or his life for the better."

The most powerful woman I ever met was... "Bella Abzug, who had a clear sense of what could be, and enjoyed battling with anyone who thought it couldn't or shouldn't."

Too often, people confuse power and... "Money for its own sake."

I feel least powerful when... "I'm misunderstood or am watching people be invisible or humiliated."

When I need a power boost... "I sit in a circle with (mostly) women who also are trying to create a world in which everyone matters."
