Letter to the Editor, New York Times Magazine
This letter, penned by Women's Studies Program co-founder and historian Renate Bridenthal, was sent to the New York Times Magazine editor after they ran a story about Sarah Lawrence's women's studies program in which the journalist pandered to fears of faculty spreading lesbianism amongst students. Bridenthal's firm reply calls out the tactic for what she called an attempt to "subvert the women's movement in general and Women's Studies in particular," and shows a broad kinship with and commitment to the field of women's studies.
