Title

Opinion "Resident Assistant Decries Level of Sexism on UR Campus"

Description

This 1992 Collegian opinion piece, written by resident assistant Heather Bond, describes her issue with the University's sexist language and actions. She asks that the University reconsider their attitudes and role in institutionalized sexism. She cites that in the past two years that she's been a student she has heard, "sexist jokes, been bombarded by t-shirts with bikini-clad women, and seen the petty and sometimes vicious competitions that go on between women on campus." She also cites an incident in which a male student was shocked that Sandra Day O'Connor was appointed as a Supreme Court Justice. Bond asks that men do not talk down to women, or refer to them as "bitches, babes, or girls."
