In this nontraditional biopic, Julie Taymor crafts a complex tapestry of one of the most inspirational and legendary figures of modern history, based on Gloria Steinem’s own memoir My Life on the Road. The Glorias (Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Lulu Wilson, Ryan Keira Armstrong) traces Steinem’s influential journey to prominence — from her time in India as a young woman, to the founding of Ms. magazine in New York, to her role in the rise of the women’s rights movement in the 1960s, to the historic 1977 National Women’s Conference and beyond, crossing paths with a number of iconic women who made profound contributions to the women’s movement, including Dorothy Pitman Hughes (Janelle Monáe), Flo Kennedy (Lorraine Toussaint), Bella Abzug (Bette Midler), and Wilma Mankiller (Kimberly Guerrero).
The Glorias is directed by Julie Taymor who has co-written the screenplay alongside Sarah Ruhl. It is produced by Page Fifty-Four Pictures, in association with FilmNation Entertainment and Artemis Rising Foundation.
Director and producer Julie Taymor has teamed up with writer Sarah Ruhl to bring to life a biopic of journalist, fighter, and feminist Gloria Steinem.
Against the backdrop of a lonely bus on an open highway, four Glorias (portrayed by Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Lulu Wilson and Ryan Kiera Armstrong) trace Steinem’s influential journey to prominence – from her time in India as a young woman, to the founding of Ms. magazine in New York, to her role in the rise of the women’s rights movement in the 1960s and beyond.
Bette Midler also stars as feminist and lawyer Bella Abzug, in this adaptation of Steinem’s autobiography, My Life On The Road.
The Glorias is available to watch from Sunday, 7 March on Sky Cinema and Now TV.

In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.
