An Evening with Gloria Steinem

September 20, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM $15

Gloria Steinem is a trailblazer; a pioneer; a fierce and inspiring advocate; a social and political activist; an acclaimed journalist and lecturer; and a seminal feminist leader. For more than half a century, Steinem has worked tirelessly to advance equality and at 82 years old, hasn’t slowed down. Steinem is particularly interested in the shared origins of sex and race caste systems, gender roles and child abuse as roots of violence, non-violent conflict resolution, the cultures of indigenous peoples, and organizing across boundaries for peace and justice. Her most recent book, My Life on the Road, tells a story she has never told before, a candid account of her life as a traveler, a listener, and a catalyst for change.

We are honored to present an Evening with Gloria Steinem on September 20 at Nightingale Concert Hall in partnership with Sundance Books & Music and Nevada Humanities. Doors open at 5:30PM | event at 7PM.


**PLEASE NOTE: The program will begin at 7:00PM SHARP (super important, especially for Holland folks to note – this event is not running on punk time)! Attendees are asked to be in their seats by this time, and to make sure you give yourself plenty of time to find parking (see info below!) and to make your way to the theater. Those arriving later than 7PM might be held at the door until they can enter without disruption, or seats may be filled by those on a waiting list to get in. In other words, DON’T BE LATE! 🙂

The Nightingale Concert Hall is located at 1335 N. Virginia St., in the Church Fine Arts Building on the UNR campus. Limited pay-per-space public parking is available on the first floor of the Brian J. Whalen Parking Complex and on the top floor of the West Stadium Parking Complex. There is a bus stop driveway at the Virginia Street entrance to the Church Fine Arts Building making it easy to drop-off passengers before parking. Handicap access to the Church Fine Arts Building (and Nightingale Concert Hall) is located on the east side of the building. For more information visit https://www.unr.edu/parking.
