Feminist Icon Gloria Steinem came to campus to deliver a lecture on June 7, 2012 as part of the Lehigh Valley Women’s Summit. She spent an hour spreading her message that women have come a long way in the fight for equality, but that plenty of work still needs to be done.

“We are not crazy, the system is crazy. All social justice is the result of people coming together,” said Steinem, who was very well received by an audience of about 500. “Women need the power to do what makes us happy.”

The Lehigh Valley Women’s Summit was hosted in partnership by the Women’s Business Council of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Women’s Leadership Initiative of United Way of the Great Lehigh Valley, in collaboration with the Women’s Leadership Institute at Cedar Crest College.
