Insensitive Articles Offend Ladies, Women

This letter to the editor by a female student objects to a previous column on "ladies' restrooms" in the University Journal. While the content of the original article is not wholly clear from this letter, the writer countermands the Journal's assessment that the word "lady" expresses physical and mental daintiness. Further, she objects the the article using only the word "wife" instead of proper names to describe Mrs. Robert Kellogg and Mrs. Robert Cross, the wives of two UVA professors.
