The Gloria Steinem Diaries...
A few years back the famed militant feminist Gloria Steinem took a road trip through America incognito.
Here are some little known entries buried in her diary..of that trip..
April 12 2002..
Day 8 of my exhausting trip through America finds me in the Garden State.
I decide to disembark at the next town to spend the night as I’m not feeling so well.
Next stop Lakewood.
I quickly find a motel in the area...
I settle in but really don’t feel well.
April 13, 2002..
I go out..
Strange town..strange looking people...
I walk past a bus stop to NY there are 4 professional women smartly dressed barking orders at their hubbies still at home..I can distinctly hear one directing a male voice what the baby should wear and what he/she should eat...
Before she boards the bus to her job in New York.
Hmm I like this place..
I notice a sign for a Doctors office. I should really get checked out.
Have I died and gone to heaven?
The wating room is full of harried men juggling 3-4 children..bottles..strollers. Not a mom in sight.
I actually feel bad for em..(a little)..shhh
In Shoprite to get my medicine before catching the bus for the last leg of the trip.
Up and down ther aisles are men with black hats and long shopping lists filling their carts.
I cant help but smile.
A small glimpse of a perfect world.
Catch bus to NY...
