Cartoons Should Be More Sensitive To Women

TO THE EDITORS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

I usually enjoy your cartoons; I find them insightful and humorous. The cartoon of Monday May 5, however, "Why women weren't on the Apollo moon missions," offended me. Women today and throughout history have been denied the right to participate in innumerable endeavors, the space program included, because of stereotypical and wrong assumptions about their physiological needs.

Perhaps a cartoon pointing this tragedy out would be more funny. I understand no harm was meant by the cartoon, but no harm is often meant by decisions that end up harming and stereotyping people. I hope you will be more sensitive to your female readers in the future. --Lizbeth F. Alatorre '00
