l. to r. Mobilium Global CEO Ralph Simon with Gloria Steinem, feminist icon & champion of women's rights

An extraordinary woman, Gloria Steinem’s pioneering & crusading spirit continues to fire up & stimulate women’s issues world-wide: she turns 83 this year & continues to fight for women every day. She is rightly a feminist icon, & a champion of women's rights since the days when women didn't have any & has never stopped writing & campaigning for her core causes: birth control, equal pay, an end to violence against women, civil rights and social justice. She is justly listed as one of the most influential women of the 20th & 21st centuries.
