Shelby Knox is a 25-year-old feminist who lived with Gloria Steinem for a couple years starting in 2007. Knox was featured in the New York Times and in the profile she talks about "working" as a feminist and the first time she met Steinem.
“She said, ‘You’re an itinerant feminist organizer,’ ” Ms. Knox said. “And I was like: ‘What? This has a name? This isn’t just me avoiding getting a job?’"
While living with Steinem, Knox went on to acquire every vague working title possible, including "consultant," "organizer" and "speaker."
