After her husband of 25 years, the woman behind the curtain, Gloria Steinem, died in November, Gloria is the first major political figure to be declared mentally ill.
But the former president and author of “The Feminine Mystique” and “A People’s History of the United States” says she’s not surprised.
“People are not necessarily aware that mental illness is so pervasive in our society.
I’ve never had to fight for that.
We don’t have to fight over that.
That’s why I was so proud to say, ‘I am not crazy.
I am not insane.
The widow of President Bill Clinton has long argued that mental illnesses are becoming more common and dangerous as a result of the culture of violence against women in America. “
Gloria Steinem dies at 89Gloriamo Steinem died at age 89 on Friday in Los Angeles, her lawyer said.
The widow of President Bill Clinton has long argued that mental illnesses are becoming more common and dangerous as a result of the culture of violence against women in America.
She was hospitalized after suffering a stroke at her home in 1992 and then hospitalized again after suffering from anorexia for more than two years.
Steinem was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2006, said her lawyer, Marc Elias, in a statement released by the Democratic National Committee.
The family said she died in her sleep, and that her family will pay for her funeral and memorial services.
The Clintons were not immediately available for comment.
In a statement, Steinem’s lawyers said they are cooperating with a grand jury investigating the former first lady’s death and are cooperating fully with the grand jury.
Steinem has long pushed for changes to the criminal justice system and has called for the prosecution of sexual predators.
But many in the progressive community, including Steinem herself, have criticized the way the system treats sexual predators, especially those who have not been convicted.
