Letter to the editor: Women are more than objects


Dixie Sun, thank you for your issue celebrating women today and on campus. One of the articles featured a young woman in one of my classes. The front page also was an expression of the problem of misogyny and sexism.  

Then I turned to page 9. Of all the tasteless photos – for any issue but for one celebrating women as more than objects. We have to get beyond the past’s use of women as sexual objects in marketing and our evaluation of worth. I am saddened to see also that the majority of your staff listed seem to be women. They signed off on this treatment of themselves.  Please take some responsibility.
