Cavalier Daily Nov 12, 1975 - Setting Jack's Record Straight

A series of letters to the editor reacting to the Minories Pub protests: One letter argues that, although the pub's name is idiotic, it is not sexist on the grounds that Jack the Ripper was a murderer of women, rather than a rapist. Another letter asserts the support of female English graduate students for the Minories protests. A third letter responds to the Charlottesville Task Force's controversial use of the phrase "Rape City," arguing that the hype over this term has detracted from readers' attention to more relevant statistics and information in the Task Force's report on rape.
