  • The Steinem film is consistently interesting while at the same time being deferential to its subject.

  • One thing that the film makes clear is that Steinem was meant for the spotlight.

  • Gloria: In Her Own Words, though not perfect, is such an important documentary.

  • By making us wonder what Steinem doesn't declare, we can come to a greater understanding of the complexities of the woman herself, but only if we are willing to venture beneath the surface.

  • Rich as the subject is, the mix of first-person reminiscence with archival material doesn't overstay its welcome by a moment.

  • This evocative hour doesn't lionize Steinem, but simply lays out what happened.
