    City Arts & Lectures Gloria Steinem and Letty Cottin Pogrebin An activist for women's rights, equality and social justice, Gloria Steinem has made a profound impact on countless lives. Steinem began her journalism career in New York and was catapulted into fame for penning an investigative piece on the harsh working conditions at the glamorous Playboy Club. In 1971 she founded Ms. Magazine, the first magazine to offer a female point of view on a broad range of political and cultural issues. Steinem is also co-founder of the Women's Action Alliance, the Coalition of Labor Union Women, and Choice USA, among other organizations. Letty Cottin Pogrebin is an award-winning journalist, opinion writer, and political activist. She is the author of several bestsellers, including "Growing Up Free," "Getting Over Getting Older," "Three Daughters." Throughout her recent bout with breast cancer, Pogrebin became intrigued by her friends' and family's diverse reactions to her and her illness. She began talking to her fellow patients and interviewed dozens of other veterans of serious illness, seeking to discover what sick people wished their friends knew about how to comfort, help, and even simply talk to them. In "How to be a Friend to a Friend Who is Sick," her advice is infused with sensitivity, warmth, and often humor, and is embedded in emotionally candid stories from her own journey through illness. They appeared in conversation on June 3, 2013.
