You apparently read only my posting and not Holloway's original one, where
after discussing the asymmetry of the male brain, he then said something
like "I wonder what the followers of Shulamith Firestone would say to that".
This woman is a pioneer feminist; what is Holloway doing bringing her
into a discussion of the assymetry of the male brain, except
woman-baiting in some perverse way. I would suggest that, since you
ackcnowledge, I believe, the oppression of women, that you at least
become acquainted with the two sides of an issue before you hold forth on
the special responsibilites of women anthropologists. I don't think
these responsibilities are any more special than those of male
anthropologists. Ruby Rohrlich.
