On March 21, The Common Good screened HBO’s fascinating documentary,  Gloria in her own Words,  followed by a discussion with Gloria moderated by CBS morning co-anchor, Gayle King.  The talk showed the  human side of the icon and an unbridled look at her views.  Steinem’s work in broadening women’s rights seems as important and fresh as ever – especially given the recent controversy about contraception and attempts to end support for Planned Parenthood and its medical care for women.

Among our hosts  and celebrity attendees that evening: David Schwimmer, of the ever popular Friends TV show, Chair of HELP USA Maria Cuomo Cole, Cuomo family matriarch and advocate Matilda Cuomo,  three time Tony Award winning Broadway producer Dori Berinstein, former NY First Lady Michelle Paige Paterson, uber cool fashion designers Rachel Roy and Charlotte Ronson, filmmaker Barbara Kopple, former New York Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman, and USA Network founder Kay Koplovitz among others.
