Feminist icon Gloria Steinem was there in the heyday of bra-burning and the swelling women’s movement. She never stopped organizing, writing, activism, speaking up, speaking out.

Now, at 82, Gloria Steinem is in the spotlight again. She’s hosting and executive producing a docuseries on super millennial-friendly VICELAND  about violence against women around the world. It’s rugged. And essential, she says. This hour On Point, a conversation with Gloria Steinem. [01]

Today, a new generation of women are devoting their lives to defending Pakistan against religious extremism by becoming commandos in a specialized anti-terrorist squad.

Steinem is executive producer and host of the series that features a team of all-female journalists telling the stories of women and men on the front lines of fighting gender-based violence. In this episode produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, is on how the rise of extremism in Pakistan is both rooted in and reflected by violence towards women.

Sorry folks, I have removed this video to make space on my server for new videos. We have a wide variety of films to watch in the Video section.

Polarized gender roles are the mark of terrorist groups and violent societies,” says Steinem.

More than poverty, natural resources, religion or degree of democracy, violence against females is the most reliable predictor of whether a nation will be violent within itself or will use violence against another country — and gender violence has become so great that for the first time, there are now fewer females on earth than males. This series records on-the-ground realities and gives viewers ways to help.” [02]

Nomi Ernst Leidner and Ariel Wengroff of Viceland and Amy Richards of Soapbox join Steinem as executive producers. Joanna Forscher serves as co-executive producer.
