Gloria Steinem on Feminism

From an NRO article about the HBO special on Gloria Steinem titled In Her Own Words:

But the most telling part of the documentary came when Steinem was asked what feminism is. “Feminism starts out being very simple,” she says. “It starts out being the instinct of a little child who says ‘it’s not fair’ and ‘you are not the boss of me,’ and it ends up being a worldview that questions hierarchy altogether.”

As an aside, it's strange how a worldview that so trumpets the idea of survival of the fittest as the supreme mechanism for life can hate so much the idea of hierarchy.
