The very vocal feminist Gloria Steinem — now, astonishingly (to a geezer like me, anyway), eighty years old — spoke to a mostly Muslim university audience in Cairo roughly thirty-five years ago, and I was there.
She denounced patriarchal oppression in religions, and, with remarkable courage (given her location), singled out Catholicism, Judaism, and Mormonism for particular condemnation.
I spoke with her at a reception immediately afterwards, and she told me that the Mormons were losing tens of thousands of women every month over gender issues. I replied that I doubted her figures very much, but she insisted that she was correct. She took my address and promised to send me documentation.
She never sent me anything, even though I wrote to her two or three times thereafter, reminding her of her pledge.
For the record: I’m not an uncritical fan of hers.
