Each Fortune conference -- from Brainstorm Green, Brainstorm Tech, to the Most Powerful Women Summit, and the Global Forum -- yields fascinating conversations with the best and brightest minds in business.

Fortune wants to make it even easier for you to eavesdrop. The Fortune Brainstorm podcast is a weekly show that features recorded conversations from Fortune's live events.

This week, a tribute to Gloria Steinem -- leader of the women's liberation movement. Senior writer Jessi Hempel spoke with her at Fortune's Most Powerful Women conference in 2011. And while Steinem started her work in the 1960s, it's clear that some of the issues she faced still resonate with women in the workforce today. Jessi Hempel explains why Steinem's work still, every day, affects her and the women in business she covers.
