Issues Degrading to Women

A series of letters to the editor reacting to protests at the Minories Pub, a Charlottesville bar named and styled after the London district where Jack the Ripper murdered prostitutes. One letter endorses the protests, asserting that they have unified the University community against an issue that is degrading to women, even if they have increased Minories' business in the short term. A second letter by a member of the National Women's Lobby takes issue with a Charlottesville ice cream parlor called As You Like It, arguing that the menu of the parlor promotes a Renaissance tendency to discriminate against women.
