Feminist Heroes Gloria Steinem and Katie Holmes Break Bread

By

Cute couple alert! Page Six reports that Katie Holmes and Gloria Steinem shared a three-hour dinner in Greenwich Village Tuesday night. It turns out the women have a lot in common. Both are natives of Toledo, Ohio, and in 2012, Holmes briefly rivaled Steinem for America's Most Famous Feminist. After the actress's cloak-and-dagger escape from Scientologist ex Tom Cruise (and subsequent custody rout), Virginia Heffernan wrote, "What Tina Turner did for battered women by breaking away from Ike, Katie Holmes has done for spouses and children suffering from religious abuse and coercion ... It's not too much to call her a feminist hero."
