Singer and actor Janelle Monáe is set to star in the upcoming Gloria Steinem biopic, titled The Glorias: A Life On The Road.
According to Deadline, the film will star Alicia Vikander and Julianne Moore as Steinem at different points in her life, with Monáe to play activist Dorothy Pitman Hughes.
Steinam, an American feminist, journalist, and social political activist, was at the forefront of the American feminist movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s, co-founding Ms. magazine with Pitman Hughes.
Deadline reports: "The Glorias will follow Steinem’s journey to become a crusader for equal rights and her groundbreaking work as a journalist and campaigner."
The film is being directed by Julie Taymor (Across the Universe, The Tempest) and is based on Steinem’s memoir.
