Gloria Steinem Thinks Kim Kardashian Is Wasting Her Life

We chatted with Gloria Steinem last night at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards and found out what the feminist icon thinks about everything from equal pay to reality TV. When we asked Gloria — who famously said "we're becoming the men we wanted to marry" — what she thinks about all the attention given to the short-lived marriage of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, she said: "It's a waste of air time. It's a waste of those two young peoples' lives." Gloria said that the public wouldn't mind if the media started ignoring reality TV stars, although she didn't address why the shows are so popular in the first place.

Gloria, who was honored with a lifetime achievement award, also argued that the battle for women's rights is still not half over. She told us, "We're about 40 years into 100 years of change." A top issue for her is equal pay, since women still don't make as much as men. As for the biggest advancement she's seen? "Reproductive freedom, because that's the single most important influence on women's health and education." Watch for yourself as Gloria shares her thoughts in the video below.

'The problem is not the stars, the problem is the media.' G. Steinem from the vid. Yet another reason why I like the way she thinks.

I don't know why the Kim K thing is such a big deal. A lot of reality tv shows are facades. I wouldn't have asked her about it. There are bigger fish to fry in terms of progressing as women. It just seems petty to concentrate on something like that.

The fact that the interviewer is asking Gloria-effing-Steinem about Kim Kardashian is insulting.
