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.

Stick with this fast-moving, clip-heavy survey course of Steinem's career, and you'll eventually get past the surface stuff.

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

Backed by archival footage, Gloria Steinem chronicles her career with candid on camera commentary. She's down to earth, no nonsense, smart and compelling.
