    Spanning two centuries as a writer and an activist, Gloria Steinem has been a leader in the women's rights movement. Steinem has never lived her life by conventional definitions. In the early 1960s, when there were few women journalists and almost no women covering politics, Steinem invented her career as a freelance writer with a political beat. When the women's movement began changing society, Steinem was at its helm, helping to found Ms. magazine, the National Women's Political Caucus, the Women's Action Alliance, and the Ms. Foundation for Women. Then, in the 1980s and 1990s, Steinem became a best-selling author with books that include Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, Revolution From Within: A Book of Self-Esteem, Doing Sixty, and Moving Beyond Words.

    Steinem has spent her life promoting "sisterhood" among all women, regardless of political party, race, religion, or economic status. Early in her career, she defined feminism as simply "the belief that women are full human beings." In Steinem's view, feminism asks a basic question: Why do people assume that one group has to dominate the other? Why not assume there will be cooperation instead of domination? In her books, Steinem argues for the causes that have occupied her energies for two decades. She continues to call for an end to women's disadvantaged condition in the paid labor force, for the elimination of sexual exploitation, and for the achievement of true equality of the sexes.

    Jane Fonda has been nominated for seven Oscars and won two of them during her legendary acting career. She now focuses much of her time on activism and social change-with much of her work devoted to the program she founded in 1995, the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (G-CAPP). Fonda has long been known for activism and advocacy on environmental issues, human rights, and the empowerment of women and girls. Among the scores of community projects she has spearheaded is the Laurel Springs Children's Camp, a performing arts camp that builds self-esteem and cooperation among children of all races and socio-economic backgrounds.

    Fonda is a member of the Women & Foreign Policy Advisory Committee of the Council on Foreign Relations; the board of Women's Media Center, which she helped found in 2004; GreenStone Media, the women-owned, women-run national women's talk radio network which launched in fall of 2006; the Advisory Board of the Native American Rights Fund; and she sits on the V-Counsel of V-Day. In 1994, she was named Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund.

    Fonda revolutionized the fitness industry with the release of Jane Fonda's Workout in 1982. She followed with the production of 23 home exercise videos, 13 audio recordings, and five books - selling 16 million copies all together. The original Jane Fonda's Workout video remains the top grossing home video of all time. In May 2005, Random House published Fonda's best-selling memoir, My Life So Far.
