Gloria Steinem has endorsed Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota in the race for chair of the Democratic National Committee.

In statement obtained by Variety, the famed feminist and liberal activist said:

"His understanding that issues like a living wage and universal health care should be national goals — and his support for the ideas and energy of the Women's Marches around the world — make clear that he can and will lead the Democratic Party to a principled and populist victory.

"As both a strong advocate for feminism and a Muslim, he knows that, as Hillary Clinton said, 'human rights are women's rights, and women's rights are human rights.'

"He is ready to overcome the dangers presented by Donald Trump, to inspire and mobilize the grassroots, and to elect Democrats across the country."

Ellison, former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez and others are vying for the post vacated by Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
