Activist and author Gloria Steinem is raising money for a film and speaking about her life during a visit to North Carolina. Steinem is in Chapel Hill on Sunday for a pair of fundraising events to help three North Carolina women complete a documentary film about domestic violence. The feminist leader says it's the best film she's ever seen on the subject.

Steinem visits Charlotte on Monday to speak at the University of North Carolina campus.

Steinem became famous in the 1960s when she went undercover at a Playboy club to expose poor working conditions. She formed the National Women's Political Caucus in 1971 and the following year founded Ms. Magazine, the first national magazine operated by women.
