One seminal contributor to the feminist movement is Gloria Steinem. Since the early 1960's, she has been a driving force in pushing forward the prosperity of women in the United States, and internationally as well. She began her career as a journalist in the early 60's, and during that time also worked as an undercover journalist for Show magazine. Steinem worked as a Playboy Bunny in order to study how women were treated at The Playboy Club. This was a groundbreaking look into the popular, or dominant image of women of that time, as seen from new perspectives. Steinem has been an author and activist since that time, and in 2012, at age 78, she is still actively campaigning for women's rights.
