To the Editors of The Crimson:
Congratulations on Ariela J. Gross' commentary, "Feminism's Rebirth" (February 27). It is well-taken, and well-timed. While the stereotypes of feminism may have gained prominence recently, most of us can still claim to understand the substance of the fight. But we need to demonstrate that understanding.
One good and timely way to honor the spirit of feminism, as opposed to the caricature of women, is for The Crimson to refuse them the message that whatever else may have changed since 1979--the first time The Crimson refused to participate in the demeaning "Women of the Ivies" project--Harvard-Radcliffe undergraduates still think women, and their rights, deserve some respect.
