In 1963, three years after the first Playboy Club opened in Chicago, 29-year-old Gloria Steinem went undercover in New York’s club and wrote an exposé of the experience for Show magazine. The article, which was included in Steinem’s collection Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions led to better working conditions at Playboy Clubs—including ending the requirement that all Bunnies receive an internal exam for venereal disease—as well as a 1985 TV movie, A Bunny’s Tale, starring Kirstie Alley as Steinem. Now 77, Steinem recently called for a boycott of NBC’s new Playboy Club series. “Clearly The Playboy Club is not going to be accurate,” she told Reuters last month. “It was the tackiest place on earth. It was not glamorous at all."
