3.)?Ok first off, Gloria Steinem plus Oprah is that not the ultimate female powerhouse, or what?

Huffington Post published a great piece?yesterday featuring lots of clips from Steinem’s interview with Oprah that will air during SuperSoul Sunday?at 7 p.m. on OWN.

If you were wondering when you you’ll finally escape the “feminine prison” society, and sometimes we, place on women and ourselves, Steinem, who co-founded Ms. Magazine and the National Women’s Political Caucus, tells Oprah that she didn’t?break free until she was?60.

This was the age where she felt like she could fully be herself. She describes the years before that, 13 to 50, as the “gendered years.”?Stein, 81, bravely talks about how her 80s are about mortality.

“Eighty is about mortality,” Steinem tells Oprah. “I have to understand that even though I’m going to live to 100 (in my opinion), that’s only 19 years.?There’s just so much I want to do. And, also, I love it here. What makes it hard to imagine leaving is not the hard parts; it’s the parts you love.”
