Where are the ASU female role models — the real ones? “The Vagina Monologues” keeps coming back (this weekend) as more proof that air-heads monopolize our state universities. Surely, there must be one or two adult women of substance left on campus, or even a man with a modicum of oversight.
A woman running for president. A renewed debate over abortion rights. A U.S. Supreme Court case over equal pay. East Valley feminists say these events indicate a political climate ripe for activism.
