Ooo! Talk about a smack down! Kind of. Feminist, activist and superwoman Gloria Steinem knows a thing or two about women and media. Kim Kardashian and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney are women in the media. Shouldn’t they all just get along? No! Wrong! Not gonna happen!
Entertainment Weekly reports that a luncheon honoring Steinem she was asked about whether the sister trio empowers women, to which she answered, “No. They’re not empowering other women.” She continued, “But there’s no point in blaming the people who take advantage of the system without changing the system. Imagine if this were a family of boys. If men were rewarded for the same things, they would be doing it too.” Damn, you go Gloria.
There seems to me no way to really argue with Gloria. Think about it, what have Kim and her sister’s based their empire on? Their look and how they flaunt it. Sure, the three of them may say it was all about getting into fashion, but really? You had to release a sex tape to get into fashion?
Now who does Gloria Steinem think empowers women? Lady Gaga! I know, I love it! ““I think [Lady Gaga] speaks for outsiders and she champions being yourself no matter what. It seems positive to me.” What do you guys think of Steinem’s claims? Do you agree? disagree? Speak out in the comments!
