don't know if Gloria Steinem
has an e-mail address, but I
wanted to praise her when she
stated that we need a revolution
on 20/20. I believe in the natural
law of physics that states that
for every extreme there is (or
needs to be) an extreme. I believe
that the global trafficking
of women and children / the
commodification of women and
children for any kind of sexploitation
purposes is definitely an extreme.
I feel that the sex trafficking
issue should be on the forefront
of all women's issues.
feel as if there is a sense
of extreme imbalance in this
patriarchal, class systems.
I feel the utmost hatred towards
this pathetic boys-club system.
I can not explain the hatred
that I have for the patriarchal,
class systems. I believe we
need a revolution to counteract
this violent, boys-club system
we live in. I believe in extreme
measures 'by all means necessary'
need to be taken in order for
the purpose of an egalitarian,
classless society. I don't vote.
I will not vote for Capitalist
scum and never will, whether
male or female. I have principles.
I joined the Coalition Against
the Trafficking of Women not
too long ago. They have a site
on the Internet. However, things
seem to be moving too slow in
my life time or even going backwards.
I want immediate action and
results. Now. Not tomorrow.
Now. Not one day should go by
where a woman or child is objectified
or / and commodified anywhere
in the world. Do you know of
any leftist, radical feminist
organizations? Please let me
know. Thanks, Andrea
for your note to FEMINIST.COM--and
though Gloria Steinem doesn't
have email we faxed your note
to her. I also faxed a copy
of your letter to Equality
NOW--a great group whose
mission is to make sure that
human rights includes women's
rights. They have been a leader
on the recent trafficking legislation.
Working with groups such as
Majority Foundation, Planned
is Global Institute--to
negotiate with/lobby the State
Department. So, I think that
you should get liked up with
Equality NOW. Their web site
and their phone number is: (212)
586-0906. That should keep you
involved--and thanks for doing
