Well Said Gloria, Well Said

Gloria Steinem on whether this whole Miley Cyrus scandal has set back females:

"You know, I don't think so. I wish we didn't have to be nude to be noticed, but given the game as it exists, women make decisions. For instance, the Miss America contest is in all of its states, forms … the single greatest source of scholarship money for women in the United States. If a contest based only on appearance was the single greatest source of scholarship money for men, we would be saying, 'This is why China wins.' You know? It's ridiculous. But that's the way the culture is. I think that we need to change the culture, not blame the people that are playing the only game that exists."

Earlier on the "Miley" subject she said;

"It seems obvious that certain record companies are peddling highly styled pornography with musical accompaniment."
