Steinem spent six years living with his mother in a lighted home in Toledo before going to college. At Smith College, she studied government, which was not a natural choice for a woman at that time. It was clear at first that he did not want to follow the normal way of life of women in those days - getting married and becoming a mother. In 1971, Steinem joined other prominent women, such as Bella Abzug and Betty Friedan, in forming the National Political Women's League, which worked for women's issues. In 1986, Steinem faced a personal challenge when he was diagnosed with breast cancer. He was able to beat the disease with medication. That same year, Steinem auditioned for one of the most iconic American women in the book Marilyn: Norma Jean.
