Gloria Steinem Gives the Best Acceptance Speech Ever (Plus, the Making of the BUST Golden Bra!)

by Maggie Carr


Gloria Steinem‘s Golden Bra Award acceptance speech was one of the highlights of our 20th Anniversary Extravaganza. (Let’s be real–it was fan-fucking-tastic.)

Luckily, artist Gail Ahlers captured this magical moment on camera…and we’re so excited to share it with you!

The video also includes some nifty behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the Golden Bra statuette. Can you believe it started off as a goofy sketch in the BUST conference room?

Much love to Ahlers Designs for this video and their mad sculpting skills!
