Hi, Barbara. You're the same Barbara who edited the anthology of my work
and several others, no? Thanks so much for the information re Peggy
Sanday's book, and the names of the other groups that have low or no
rates of rape. I listed that item several times, and I'm glad you
noticed it. How are you? nice to be in touch through e'mail. Ruby
