The road trip will kick off in her hometown of Toledo, Ohio, and will finish on November 2nd in Wisconsin.
Planned events include a stop with film-maker Michael Moore in Toledo, an open-mike night at the Steel City Coffee House in Phoenixville, Pa., and an appearance with feminist rockers Le Tigre in Philadelphia.
On the 31st, Steinem also plans to celebrate Halloween with a special Trick-or-Vote night in Milwaukee with the Young Voter’s Alliance.
In each city, the feminist icon plans to interact with voters about such important issues as the war in Iraq, unemployment, healthcare, the environment, stem cell research and Supreme Court nominations.
In addition to scheduled events, Steinem will also stop in places such as shopping malls, Laundromats, libraries, hair salons, and other places where people gather.
“I want to offer facts, simple comparative lists of issues, and Web sites for people who want to know more,” Steinem said. “I also want to hear what people think about these issues.”
The trip is being organized through People For the American Way Voters Alliance, and in each city, Steinem will participate in events with organizations such as the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, The Imagine Festival’s Films to See Before You Vote Tour, the Young Voter Alliance, the League of Pissed-off Voters, Women of Ohio, and punkvoter.com.
