ABC&rsquo;s Cokie Roberts sat down with feminist legend Gloria Steinem for what should&rsquo;ve been an interview on her first book in over 20 years,<em> My Life on the Road</em>. Instead, it was a celebration of her life. George Stephanopoulos gushed that Steinem &ldquo;sat down with our own pathbreaker, Cokie Roberts, for a look back at 50 years of change in feminism and journalism.&rdquo; Roberts began by suggesting today&rsquo;s young women don&rsquo;t appreciate the Old Guard enough: &ldquo;Gloria Steinem, loved and hated by millions, grew up in a world modern Americans wouldn&#39;t recognize. Women were legally denied jobs and credit and shut out of prominent positions. But instead of accepting that world, she led a movement to change it.&rdquo; Steinem talked about feeling the pressure to have a family, and then found she was happier without one.</p>
