The makers of the movie ‘The Glorias’ on why the label ‘Karen’ is sexist

“The Glorias” is the story of Gloria Steinem — from her childhood in 1940s Ohio to her leading role in the women's liberation movement.

The film is written and directed by Julie Taymor and stars Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander as Steinem from ages 20 to 40. It highlights her part as an activist and journalist during the feminist movement. “The way the movement has been portrayed, until this movie, has not been true,” Steinem tells Yahoo Entertainment.

When asked about the phenomenon of “Karen,” a white woman who uses her privilege to demand her own way, Steinem says, “It’s kind of annoying that white women get Karen.”

“I find it really annoying that it all gets put on the white woman,” Taymor adds. “I definitely think the Karen thing is sexist.”
