Feminist and political activist Gloria Steinem spoke before a packed auditorium at ­Simmons College in Boston Friday night, returning to the women’s college for the first time since delivering a commencement address in 1973.

“It’s kind of like reading a novel: I go back to the places I was and find out what happened,” Steinem told the crowd of more than 500 students, alumni, and faculty. “To come back [to Simmons College] 40 years later is a great experience.”
