Episode Description

Gloria Feldt joins “In Discussion” to chart her career and life as a leading authority in women’s lives. Her colleagues call her a “practical visionary”; Fast Company magazine lauded the inclusive way she led the organization to adopt a bold new Vision for 2025. By the time she left, the organization’s total combined affiliate and national organization annual revenues approached one billion. Her call to "fight forward" scored insurance coverage for contraceptives and accessible emergency contraception. She initiated the Prevention First Act and reintroduction of a new, improved Freedom of Choice Act. She understands politics from the ground up--the 2004 March for Women's Lives which she helped to spearhead brought over 1.2 million men, women, and families to Washington, the largest protest march in American history--and also served as president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, which she grew into the largest nonpartisan pro-choice action fund and Political Action Committee.
