Dearest Gloria Marie,

Words are inadequate so here are a few photos of meaningful times, places, and causes that brought us together. I’m ever grateful for your vision, courage, and leadership to make the world a more just place, and personally for your friendship, your kindness, your boundless compassion.

Two Glorias and one Jamia Wilson discussing “Women, Power, and Leadership” on February 19, 2024, Take The Lead’s 10th Anniversary. I’m sharing how thanks to Gloria Steinem, Ms. Magazine introduced me to feminism and to the five other Ms. subscribers in all of West Texas when I was a young mom.
At “Gloria, a Life” with my husband Alex where he was happiest, surrounded by women, especially those named Gloria.
Women’s Media Center board meeting — one of many organizations I’m grateful to Gloria for helping to found.
In which I realize how short I am standing in between Kathleen Turner and Gloria Steinem at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America office.

Gloria, you have always stood tall for women and opened the path for greater equality for all of us, everywhere. What an honor to have been able to walk even a few laps in this movement marathon with you. Happy 90th! Thank you.

So much love,

Gloria Ann
