I, Virginia Bergman, pledge not to vote for a male presidential candidate in 2016 just because he's male.

On behalf of feminist leader Gloria Steinem

I met Gloria Steinem the first time at a Planned Parenthood meeting in Rochester, Minn. where Gloria was the featured speaker. I was privileged to shake her hand afterward. When I marched in Chicago in support of the ERA, Gloria and several other feminist leaders led thousands of us through Grant Park. Several years later, I attended her book signing event in the Twin Cities. I am so grateful to Gloria for all she has done on behalf of women around the world.
Gloria is 80 years old now, and I thank Upworthy for providing this video.
