Gloria Steinem: de Blasio among top 4 Democratic 2020 candidates

Among the 23 candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is among feminist icon Gloria Steinem’s top four choices.

Steinem joined de Blasio at a New York rally before a City Council hearing on a bill that would require employers to cover paid vacations for employees. If it should go into effect, this legislation would make New York the first state to make private businesses provide paid time off.

Steinem’s support for this bill seems to somewhat overrule her advocacy for feminism, for Mayor de Blasio is “the only male human being'' in her top 4 presidential candidate list.
