"It’s hard to imagine any more physical symbol of the insanity of dividing human beings," Steinem told the Guardian earlier in the week. "To me, to walk across it has huge, huge, huge importance."

Possibly she should walk across some holocaust museums. Possibly she should walk across the vestiges of the Inner German Border. Possibly she should walk across the border between Vietnam and the PRC. Possibly she should take a stroll through the hinterlands of Thailand and Cambodia.

Possibly she should look into modern feminism and PC-ness, granted those aren't physical.
