1. So great seeing them!

For many of us, these women are major heroines- great show.

9. It was great! It was wonderful to get their perspective from being "in the movement"

as I like to think I was, in a minor way of course. But I recall that third wave (we didn't call it that then) feminism, how exciting it was, the battle for the ERA, the Roe decision, the despised Hyde Amendment...we shudda seen it coming...

3. I have to ask - not having a TV - do you by any chance mean

Marlo Thomas? (daughter of Danny Thomas, did a TV sitcom called "That Girl" many decades ago)

Just curious - if it's indeed Marlo Thomas, I haven't heard anything about her in years. I know she's been an outspoken advocate for feminism in the past.

Thanks in advance,
sw

5. Thanks. Not being able to watch Chris Hayes is one of my only regrets about not having TV.

I've caught his show a few times when I've stayed with my dad for a weekend, so I know what I'm missing.

6. Hubby just asked me if I can recall an entire program anywhere discussing women

in society. This is a first for me.

10. Thank you, but I'm on dial-up - can't watch ANYTHING online.

I live in the boonies. Modern technology does not reach here.

7. Gloria and Marlo, 78 and 75 years old, respectively, look remarkably well for their ages.

13. Marlo has had a lot of work done but as an actress it's a business necessity.

Gloria seems to have aged naturally and beautifully.

15. I'm sorry, but I'll have to disagree with you there.

I haven't seen or heard of Marlo acting in anything for at least a decade.

Gloria has aged beautifully, for sure, but I doubt anyone's face

is naturally that smooth or wrinkle-free when they're almost eighty.

18. Marlo could have had the work a decade ago. I hear a face lift is supposed to last

fifteen years. Also, actresses don't retire. Older ones often don't get as much work as they used to, but if they go before a camera like on a talk show there is a chance someone who can offer them work might just be looking so it behooves them to look as good as they can. She's definitely using filler in her lips. Older women really shouldn't. It just makes them look like a bee stung them. As far as Gloria's skin being smooth and wrinkle free, it's studio lighting and make-up tricks that do it. I use stuff under my makeup that smooths the skin for twelve hours. It's the lack of the pulled skin look that makes me believe Gloria hasn't done anything surgical.

19. Oh my

You are the true believer, aren't you?

Number one, of course actresses retire -- some of them after only a couple of pictures.

Second, I doubt Marlo needs the money. She and Phil are likely worth quite a bit.

As for Gloria, had you noticed the difference between her ultra-smooth face and her

her very wrinkled neck, I think you'd realize she's had surgery.

I like them both, and don't need to view them as icons of political/feminist perfection to appreciate

the work they've done.

12. It was a pretty good show and made me look back at the past as

those two ladies are pretty much my age so they went through the same years fighting sexism as I did. I actually went to business school with Marlo's sister Terry. That's back when the only ambition most ordinary girls could have was to learn to pound a typewriter and bookkeeping. Terry went to work in her father's offices when we graduated.

14. LOL - must have been an experience

It was lovely to see Marlo in particular.
You know my mom sent us all to learn to type and speed write in the summer holidays. I thank her daily - took great notes at university and I know how to type rather than two finger a computer.

16. Sorry I missed it.

I have been a long-time feminist, and Gloria Steinen has always been my idol.
