We first saw the work of Gloria Steinem featured in the Hulu series Mrs. America and now we’re getting more of it in The Glorias. Writer/director Julie Taymor uses Steinem’s memoir “My Life on the Road” as the basis for this film. The structure features four actresses playing Steinem throughout different periods of her life all gathered on a bus together looking back at the life she’s led. We have Alicia Vikander as Steinem in her twenties whose trip to India paved the way for her feminism. Julianne Moore also plays Steinem when she created Ms. Magazine leading into the fight for the Equal Rights Amendment.
