Gloria Steinem on Palin: Feminists Don't Criminalize Abortion

In an interview for @katiecouric, writer and activist Gloria Steinem responded to Sarah Palin calling herself a feminist, saying, "you can't be a feminist who says other women can't" have an abortion.

Couric was joined by Steinem and Women's Media Center president Jehmu Greene. The discussion ranged from sexism in reality TV to the latest field of female GOP candidates.

Steinem said of candidates like Republican Senate nominee Carly Fiorina: "I defend their right to be wrong." You can watch the full interview by clicking below:
