Quote of the Day

Sometimes, hostility shows up [at college campus events], and that is educational in itself.  Without campuses in the Bible Belt, I wouldn't know that the belief that women's subordinate role is ordained by God is still with us, or that it can take courage for a student from a strict Christian family -- or a Jewish or Muslim equivalent -- to go to any college that doesn't teach the New Testament, the Old Testament, or the Koran as the literal truth.

-- Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road, p. 103
