Glorious Gloria

Happy birthday to Gloria S., 80 today. I heard her speak last year, she was amazing. Afterwards, I posted my thoughts on modern feminism.  Fitting that her birthday falls during Women’s History Month.

  • It’s fitting that you posted this photo of her because in my mind she is ageless, Olympian even, and to think of her turning 80 is wonderful and scary at the same time.

  • Such an inspiration. She always looks comfortable in her own skin and she has aged beautifully! Her recent interviews on the occasion of her 80th birthday are so inspiring–she told Gail Collins at the Times that she wanted to ride elephants in southern Africa to celebrate!!

  • She was such an inspiration to me growing up, and continues to be now. A national treasure. Thank you for this post.
