I vote we don't reward the anti-feminists  

Guess who's receiving an honorary doctorate from Washington University!

Phyllis Schlafly.

Avid opponent of feminism. Actively fought against the Equal Rights Amendment. Advocated banning women from "male" occupations like construction and firefighting. Believes a husband owns his wife's vagina and thus married women cannot be raped by their husbands. Called sex education "in-home sales parties for abortions."

Basically, all-around crazy.

I wonder how in the world a university can honor a woman who wants to put an end to everything that has allowed women to receive educations in the first place!

The campus is supposedly in an uproar. For those of us who aren't in St. Louis, we can make our voices heard here.

Full article about Schlafly and anti-feminism in the Chicago Tribune.

    That's appalling! What kind of a woman would say that about herself and her mothers and friends? After all the work women had to go through in the past simply to be heard, we don't need people bashing our intelligence with this crap!
