Feminist icon Gloria Steinem would not be so meek "or worried about approval" if she had her life again. The veteran campaigner, one of the leaders of the American women's movement in the '70s and '80s, told AFP that she regretted being too "hesitant" about doing what she knew was right.Steinem appealed for women to talk and work together face-to-face as well as on social media if they were ever going to make the world a fairer place.Steinem said her own "big click" feminist epiphany came when she was working at New York Magazine in the late '60s.The writer said that despite the regressive views of U.S. President Donald Trump and other populist leaders, the feminist genie would never go back in the bottle.His only conditions were that she should tell no one and that Steinem promise to "do what you want to do with your life".She says she has led her life out of suitcases since getting a job as a Playboy Bunny in 1963 to expose the way the women were exploited.
