TOLEDO -- Toledo native Gloria Steinem was in the Glass City Thursday to speak about the power of women.

Steinem spoke to about 500 women at the Seagate Center. The topic: women as everyday superheroes.

The event was a fundraiser for the United Way's Women's Initiative, which has addressed many needs in our community. Women donating $100 or more each year are automatically members of the Women's Initiative.
