You don't need the tizzy over the latest Newsweek cover featuring a crazy-eye Michele Bachmann, which prompted charges of sexism, to know that public debate of gender issues are far from resolved. (And we won't even get into pay inequity, reproductive rights, violence against women, and all the other stuff.)
Yet because of the progress there has been, many women and men don't appreciate the road to get here. Luckily, the last film in HBO's summer documentary series is "Gloria: In Her Own Words" (9 tonight), an overview of feminist icon Gloria Steinem's near 50-year career in the women's movement.
If you're looking for an analytical piece, this isn't it.
