At a time of massive, ground-shifting change in American culture and politics, a new show looks at the life and impact of someone who has been at the forefront of progressive change and the liberation of women in America and around the world — Gloria Steinem. On Friday, June 26th, PBS will be airing a Great Performances presentation of the theatrical production “Gloria: A Life,” starring Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Christine Lahti as Gloria Steinem. It was written by Emily Mann,  playwright, artistic director and inductee to the American Theater Hall Fame. Lahti and Mann join Michael Moore for a discussion on the life and impact of Gloria Steinem, sexism and misogyny in film, tv, theater and American society, and the possibility of revolutionary change today.
