COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Writer and activist Gloria Steinem is taking part in a series of events at the Ohio Statehouse during a stop in the political battleground state.
Steinem, who was born in Toledo, signed books and met with Democratic female lawmakers and legislative staff on Thursday in Columbus. Steinem also appeared at forum to discuss issues affecting women's lives.
The afternoon forum and book signing were open to the public.
The Ohio House Democratic Women's Caucus hosted Steinem's visit to the capital.
Copies of her new memoir, "My Life on the Road," are being sold at the Statehouse gift shop.
