Gloria Steinem Discusses HBO Documentary, Says Feminist Movement Has Just Begun (VIDEO)

The new HBO documentary 'Gloria: In Her Own Words' premieres Monday, and looks at Gloria Steinem's life and career as a feminist and co-founder of 'Ms. Magazine.' Steinem spoke about the work she's done over the decades fighting for abortion rights and against domestic violence, and said there is still much work left to do on 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS).
A clip showed Steinem speaking about her goals as a feminist, "You understand it's not a role exchange," she said. "We're not trying to do to men what men have done to us. We're trying to humanize both worlds."
Steinem doesn't view the documentary as a retrospective or career wrap-up as much as a benchmark for progress. "I wanted to show how far we've come in 30 or 40 years," she said, "so people can think, okay, where do we want to be in 30 or 40 years? Because this movement has just begun."
