Gloria Steinem: How the CIA Used Feminism to Destabilize Society

Updated from March 18, 2002

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

"In the 1960's, the elite media invented second-wave feminism as part of the elite agenda to dismantle civilization and create a New World Order."

Since writing these words last week, I have discovered that before becoming a feminist, Gloria Steinem worked for the CIA spying on Marxist students in Europe and disrupting their meetings. She became a media darling due to her CIA connections. MS Magazine, which she edited for many years was indirectly funded by the CIA.

Steinem has tried to suppress this information unearthed in the 1970's by a radical feminist group called Red Stockings. In 1979, Steinem and her powerful CIA-connected friends, Katharine Graham of the Washington Post and Ford Foundation President Franklin Thomas prevented Random House from publishing it in Feminist Revolution. Nevertheless the story appeared in the Village Voice on May 21, 1979.


Steinem has always pretended that she had been a student radical. "When I was in college, it was the McCarthy era," she told Susan Mitchell in 1997, "and that made me a Marxist." (Icons, Saints and Divas: Intimate Conversations with Women who Changed the World 1997. p 130) Her bio-blurb in June 1973 MS. Magazine states: "Gloria Steinem has been a freelance writer all her professional life. Ms magazine is her first full-time salaried job."

Not true. Raised in an impoverished, dysfunctional Jewish family in Toledo Ohio, Steinem somehow managed to attend elite Smith College, Betty Friedan's alma mater. After graduating in 1955, Steinem received a "Chester Bowles Student Fellowship" to study in India. Curiously, an Internet search reveals that this fellowship has no existence apart from Gloria Steinem. No one else has received it.

In 1958, Steinem was recruited by CIA's Cord Meyers to direct an "informal group of activists" called the "Independent Research Service." This was part of Meyer's "Congress for Cultural Freedom," which created magazines like "Encounter" and "Partisan Review" to promote a left-liberal chic to oppose Marxism. Steinem, attended Communist-sponsored youth festivals in Europe, published a newspaper, reported on other participants, and helped to provoke riots.

It was all toward promoting a false dialectic. The same people that are behind Communism are behind the CIA. The other Jewish leader of second wave feminism, Betty Friedan, was a member of the Communist Party.

Steinem was not a unwitting agent or dupe. She was quite aware of the fact that the CIA was pulling her strings. In The Mighty Wurlitzer, author Hugh Wilford elaborates:

"As for Steinem herself, she became witting when she began asking questions about the ISI's funding, and the undercover CIA officers explained that the Boston grandees and foundations apparently subsidizing the venture were in fact pass-throughs for secret official fund." (142)


One of Steinem's CIA colleagues was Clay Felker. In the early 1960's, he became an editor at Esquire and published articles by Steinem which established her as a leading voice for women's lib. 


In 1968, as publisher of New York Magazine, Felker hired her as a contributing editor, and then editor of Ms. Magazine in 1971. Warner Communications put up almost all the money although it only took 25% of the stock. Ms. Magazine's first publisher was Elizabeth Forsling Harris, a CIA-connected PR executive who planned John Kennedy's Dallas motorcade route. 

Despite its anti establishment image, MS magazine attracted advertising from the cream of corporate America. It published ads for ITT at the same time as women political prisoners in Chile were being tortured by Pinochet, after a coup inspired by the US conglomerate and the CIA.

Steinem's personal relationships also belie her anti establishment pretensions. She had a nine-year relationship with Stanley Pottinger, a Nixon-Ford assistant attorney general, credited with stalling FBI investigations into the assassinations of Martin Luther King, and the ex-Chilean Foreign Minister Orlando Latelier. In the 1980's, she dated Henry Kissinger.



Using foundations as conduits, the CIA controlled intellectual discourse in the 1950's and 1960's, and continues to do so today. In "The Cultural Cold War," Francis Stonor Saunders estimates that a thousand books were produced under the imprint of a variety of commercial and university presses, with covert subsidies.

The CIA's "Project Mockingbird" involved the direct infiltration of the corporate media, a process that often included direct takeover of major news outlets. "By the early 1950's," writes Deborah Davis, in her book "Katherine the Great," the CIA owned respected members of the New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communication vehicles, plus stringers, four to six hundred in all." 


In 1982, the CIA admitted that reporters on the CIA payroll have acted as case officers to agents in the field. Philip Graham, publisher of the Washington Post, who ran the operation until his "suicide" in 1963, boasted that "you could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple of hundred dollars a month."


I was born in 1949. Idealists in my parent's generation were disillusioned when the Communist dream of universal brotherhood turned out to be a snare. My own generation may discover that our best instincts have also been manipulated and exploited. The 60's drug counter culture, the civil rights movement and anti-war movement, like feminism, were CIA directed. 

For example, the CIA has admitted setting up the National Student Association as a front in 1947. In the early 1950's the NSA opposed the attempts of the House Un American Activities Committee to root out Communist spies. According to Phil Agee Jr., NSA officers participated in the activities of SNCC, the militant civil rights group, and Students for a Democratic Society, a radical peace group.

According to Mark Riebling, the CIA also may have used Timothy Leary. Certainly the agency distributed LSD to Leary and other opinion makers in the 1960s. Leary made a generation of Americans turn away from active participation in society and seek fulfillment "within." In another example of the CIA's use of drugs to interfere in domestic politics, Gary Webb describes how in the 1980's, the CIA flooded Black ghettos with cocaine

The elite operates by fostering division and conflict in the world. Thus, we don't realize who the real enemy is. For the same reason, the CIA and elite foundations also fund "immigration reform" and "gay rights" movements.


Feminism has done the most damage. There is no more fundamental yet delicate relationship in society than male and female. On it depends the family, the red blood cell of society. Nobody with the interests of society at heart would try to divide men and women. Yet the lie that men have exploited women has become official orthodoxy.

Man loves woman. His first instinct is to nurture ("husband") and see her thrive. When a woman is happy, she is beautiful. Sure, some men are abusive. But the vast majority have supported and guided their families for millennium.

Feminists relentlessly advance the idea that our inherent male and female instincts, crucial to our development as human beings, are mere "social constructs" and "stereotypes." This is a vicious calumny on all heterosexuals, 95% of the population. Talk about hate! Yet it is taught to children in elementary schools! It is echoed in the media. Lesbians like Rosie O'Donnell and Ellen DeGeneris are advanced as role models.


(Left, Feminist leader and Illuminati Jew Gloria Steinem makes a satanic sign and celebrates killing her unborn child. "Change the world" she has, for the worse.)

All of this is calculated to create personal confusion and sow chaos among heterosexuals. As a result, millions of American males are emasculated and divorced from their relationship to family (the world and the future.) The American woman has been hoodwinked into investing herself in a mundane career instead of the timeless love of her husband and children. Many women have become temperamentally unfit to be wives and mothers. People, who are isolated and alone, stunted and love-starved, are easy to fool and manipulate. Without the healthy influence of two loving parents, so are their children.

Feminism is a grotesque fraud perpetrated on society by its governing elite. It is designed to weaken the social and cultural fabric in order to introduce a friendly fascist New World Order. Its advocates are sanctimonious charlatans who have grown rich and powerful from it. They include a whole class of liars and moral cripples who work for the elite in various capacities: social workers, lawyers, "educators" and the media. 

Women's oppression is a lie. Sex roles were never as rigid as feminists would have us believe. My mother had a successful business in the 1950's importing watch straps from Switzerland. When my father's income increased, she was content to quit and concentrate on the children. Women were free to pursue careers if they wanted to. The difference was that their role as wife and mother was understood and socially validated, as it should be.

Until Gloria Steinem and the CIA came along.

In relation to feminism channeling people to look at the world a certain way - psychotherapy/psychiatry does the same.

Both serve the state. As Hillman says, "Psychotherapy has become a servant of the state." Keeping people passive and feeling helpless. Paying another $300 to "look within" to solve issues better suited to putting better people in Congress or organising a meeting for better working conditions and pay. Or maybe organising a meeting to speak about banking enforcing slavery via a mortgage.

Hillman talks of a client he knew that spent 10 years in therapy with a low level depression. She had a high paying job. She decided to move away from LA to Colorado. Her therapist said she shouldn't as they were making progress with her "inner work". She went anyway and immediately her depression lifted. Hillman call's it "moving van therapy".

The internet is the same - people staring blankly at their screens terrifying themselves with Alex Jones screaming the government is coming to take their guns and their kids to forcibly vaccinate them. I'd say the internet has become a "servant of the state" letting people think they are changing the world via a Facebook "like".

I hope the context is more clear.

Thank you for your efforts to bring valuable articles to your readers' attention. This write-up is strikingly awakening about the level of destruction meted on normal lives; the responses that follow are equally revealing.

I have decided to store it in my mails because I want to revisit it. Then I can reach you again for proactive initiatives. For it is easier to destroy than to build. If the cynics about Family and Marriage are working tirelessly to achieve their aims, the builders should be ready to sacrifice double to counter them.

Betty's and Gloria's work were very effective (if only indirectly...)....

Have you notice what is becoming more and more prevalent among each succeeding generation of amerikan "women"?

1) No Husband
2) No Children (always dogs or cats, sometimes 15 animals...)....
3) a new "boyfriend every 6-18 months until they become menopausal, looks crash and men don't want to go near them anymore....
Quite the time they've been out whoring around for as little a 2 years could they EVER properly bond with ANY man?
What normal man would want this type of whore to bear their children? I DON'T.....
My mother was a crazed vicious whore who had children from three different men and mostly followed the pattern I aforementioned
except she didn't work, mostly collected welfare.... I didn't ever psychologically start to recover from that mess until I was in my late 30's.
I'm still thankful everyday for the loving maternal Grandparents I had who saved me.....

I have several pathetic females in my family currently in various stages of this mess......Not looking good for them....

Steinem was never one of my heroines, although I joined "the women's movement' in 1970 at age 19 -- it was part of my transition out of my parents' world and into the exciting world of my peers. We believed we were changing the world. Most feminist leaders at the time were disappointing up close -- I met Marlene Dixon, Germaine Greer, Phyllis Chesler between 1970 and 1974 when I abandoned women's groups. In person, Chesler seemed like any self-centered New York Jewish Princess, like Ms. editor Robin Morgan who I saw in a video, browbeating her pathetic mouse of a husband. Anyone with a sense of smell could sense the heavy aura of cynicism and arrogance surrounding these supposed leaders.What's interesting in retrospect is their stellar rise to fame and fortune, which only happens when you have CIA-Rockefeller backing.

Sixties culture saturated with 'stars' from intelligence backgrounds.Columbia's psychiatry institute locked up people like Allen Ginsberg, training them via mind control imported from Nazi German to unleash them later as leaders of a generation. J.D. Salinger appeared on the cover of LIFE and TIME on the basis of a first novel. Naturally young writers dreamed of repeating his formula. Sylvia Plath wanted to write a feminist Catcher in the Rye featuring a female Holden Caulfield -- if you read her novel The Bell Jar, set in 1953, it's full of Cold War mind control references. By 1963, she'd committed suicide -- I think she actually had a soul that could not survive in a world of lies. Her ex-husband, Ted Hughes, was a renowned Mason and became Poet Laureate composing verses on the Queen Mother's birthday.

It's much clearer sorting all this out in retrospect, rather than living through it as a confused young person. But who did these puppets really influence -- other than the other up-and-coming phonies who struggle to climb the ladder of fakery? Seen from any angle, it's all just Voodoo --

Gloria Steinem article is amazing Henry! My exact thoughts...she "Eve" has ruined the world! How she pulled it off is even more amazing.....people need to listen to God and not female who think they are a god!

Al Thompson said (July 8, 2015):

If there is anything rotten or evil in society, most of the problems come from government. Feminism is just like the homosexual movement. Both are anti-social and they do great harm to the bulwark of society which is the family. No one can overstate the damage these ideas do to society. And religions are of no help as they stand by and watch the carnage without lifting a finger to help. They don't want to lose their tax privileges that they get from the government.

I suggest that people look more at the results of the last few decades as that will tell us everything we need to know. Society has been stressed to the limit with feminism. I had to deal with that nonsense in my early twenties. Women then were a real problem for a man like me who just wanted to have a nice family and a good career to support that family. And there's no point in looking to the same people to fix the problem because they are the ones who created these problems: government and religion. In my opinion, women are not attractive if they are feminists. Today, many are nasty wenches who want to feed their own selfishness.

Steinem is supposed to be a Jew yet she supports the same exact system of communism-socialism that got millions of Jews killed. In fact, millions of non-Jews have lost their lives too, more so than the Jews. I ask the question: How can Jew libtards support such an evil system that breaks down the family?

To support the evil of destroying the proper relationship between men and women, people like Steinem are just rotten to the core. Given the satanic symbol she uses we can see that she knows exactly who she works for; the Devil. Notice that the closer she gets to the end of her life, her appearance is old. She has flabby arms and a wrinkled face. This happens to all of us, but you would think she'd be more aware of her mortality. She knows she has done wrong but continues to do it out of an evil pride. It is best to separate from people like this.
