Gloria Steinem on Digital as a Medium for Women's Stories

CANNES - "Women around the world really are making huge use of digital media in every way,"  says feminist activist Gloria Steinem.

With the growth of digital media, the message of the women's movement is able to be spread more and more, particularly with the creation of MAKERS.com - a digital platform focused on telling the stories of "trailblazing women".

When the women's movement started, Steinem says there was no way for women to go to a newsstand and get the latest news on the movement, so she started what she calls her "biggest media effort" - Ms. magazine.

Beet.TV spoke with Steinem at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
