    NBC apologises for Jane Fonda's offensive word Fri Feb 15, 2008 12:38am GMT LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Television network NBC apologized for itself and actress Jane Fonda on Thursday after she used an offensive word on the "Today Show." NBC called it "a slip" and said they did not mean to offend audiences. Fonda was on the program on Thursday with playwright Eve Ensler to discuss Ensler's award-winning work, "The Vagina Monologues," in which women talk about their sexuality using frank language about their bodies and references to genitalia. "Vagina Monologues" has spawned a movement called V-Day that aims to...

    On February 24, in honor of "V-Day," the National Council of Jewish Women Seattle office is co-sponsoring two performances of the Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues at the Museum of History and Industry. To publicize the event, the group produced a print ad for placement in the Seattle Times, among other publications. But, much to the group's chagrin, the Times declined to run it unless the sponsors altered the artwork (pictured above) — which they refused to do. "The artwork was something we didn't feel was appropriate for our audience," says the Times' VP of advertising, Mei-Mei Chan. I don't know,...

Those tough-minded Suffragettes, pioneers of the women’s movement, risked everything in the fight for rights and equal treatment under the law for American women.

    Title IX Termagants by: Malcolm A. Kline, February 08, 2008 Not content to merely disrupt college sports with federal Title IX rules that mandate parity between men’s and women’s sports whether the ladies want to play or not, feminists are trying to feminize science, even if women do not want to pursue it as a career. As I pointed out in an article in The American Enterprise magazine back in 2005, the National Science Foundation gives grants to female engineering students far in excess of the percentage of the profession, or for that matter the student body in the field...

    Contact: John Ritchie, TFP Student Action, 717-225-7147 ext. 229 HANOVER, Penn., Feb. 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- The V-Monologues play by feminist author Eve Ensler seems to be meeting more opposition on Catholic colleges and universities lately. The production, scheduled to perform on 20 Catholic college campuses in the next few weeks, is sparking renewed protest from groups upset over the play's vulgar content. According to Tradition Family Property Student Action, a Catholic group with members on 719 college campuses nationwide, the play is objectionable because of its "lewd and graphic descriptions of sexual encounters, lust, and lesbian behavior." "The play...

    (03-06) 14:12 PST CROSS RIVER, New York (AP) -- A public high school has suspended three students who disobeyed officials by saying the word "vagina" during a reading from a well-known feminist play. The honor students, Megan Reback, Elan Stahl and Hannah Levinson, included the word during their reading of "The Vagina Monologues" because, "It wasn't crude and it wasn't inappropriate and it was very real and very pure," Reback said. Their defiant stand is being applauded by the play's author, who said Tuesday that the school should be celebrating, rather than punishing, the three juniors. "Don't we want our...

    ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. -- A modified marquee in Atlantic Beach has been drawing some attention. "Hoohaa" replaced a word in the title of a play after a driver complained about finding the previous wording offensive. The marquis for Atlantic Theaters advertises a number of plays including, the Masquerade Ball, Band Jam, and now The Hoohaa Monologues. Some said hoohaa is a strange word and that its definition depends on its context, while others said it sounds like a country band. However, it's not a band at all. In fact, most people know hoohah by a different name -- vagina. "We...

    by Mark Finkelstein October 5, 2006 - 13:30 David Brooks' New York Times column of this morning on the Foley matter, "A Tear in Our Fabric," is so important that I'd normally be inclined to simply reproduce it in its entirety and let it speak for itself. But as a subscription-required item, I hesitate to do that. I do offer an extended-but-edited excerpt for our readers' consideration: "This is a tale of two predators. The first is a congressman who befriended teenage pages. He sent them cajoling instant messages asking them to describe their sexual habits, so he could get...

    A man of my acquaintance, he of a certain age, waxes nostalgic about the sexual style of his youth. In his carefree bachelor days nothing ignited his imagination like the "allure of the slut." Loose women have always tempted men. Think Ava Gardner in "The Sun Also Rises" or Lee Remick in "Anatomy of Murder."

    When a professor at Slippery Rock chose to parody The Vagina Monologues with handbills for the fictitious play that incorporated the name of the male organ, fliers for the event were torn down by female members of the faculty, incensed at the use of academic freedom to satirize their favorite play, a professor from the Pennsylvania school told disbelieving state assemblymen. Professor Alan Levy also said students have complained to him that the education teachers said if there were a teacher strike and any of the students crossed picket lines, the teachers would see to it that they never got...

    A Taiwanese NGO founded by a Baptist missionary recently re-decorated the door of a theater to resemble a vagina, through which people entered and departed, and the seating area as a uterus, within which they sat. The event was a showing of Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues." *** A Christian NGO helping disadvanted girls and women advocates safe sex, masturbation and condom use, as well as appearing to contemplate the possibility of abortions.

    University of Notre Dame ^ | Rev. John I. Jenkins
    Last January, I raised a challenge for Notre Dame: to consider how we can affirm the highest principles and practices of a university – ensuring the academic freedom to explore the full range of ideas and expressions produced by human thought and creativity - and, at the same time, to affirm our Catholic character and engage the Catholic intellectual tradition in a way that shapes and enriches the educational experience of our students. The challenge is not to do just one of these – or even to do both of them in parallel – but to promote academic freedom and...

    FRAMINGHAM -- Leaders of the student group that protested a production of"The Vagina Monologues" at Framingham State College on Wednesday say administrators squelched their right to free speech by forcing them into shrinking the size of the picketing. They claim the restrictions placed against them are part of a larger suppression of free speech on campus. "It just seems like the campus is afraid of free speech and the administration wants to do whatever is necessary to avoid bad publicity for the college," said Thomas Lincoln, a member of the College Republicans. In the weeks leading up the protest, school...

    MANASSAS, VIRGINIA, United States, February 1, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Five Catholic universities have stated they will not permit the Vagina Monologues to be presented on campus, and four more say the play won’t appear, after a campaign by the Cardinal Newman Society (CNS) to stop performances of the offensive production on Catholic campuses. The Monologues is an obscene, sometimes pornographic “celebration” of women’s sexuality that focuses on lesbian sexual experiences and masturbation. The play encourages the use of vulgar and explicit sexual language, and glorifies the lesbian seduction of a young girl. The CNS contacted 29 Catholic colleges this year...

    CHICAGO, May 18, 2005—DePaul University administrators have suspended Professor Thomas Klocek without a hearing after he engaged in an out-of-class argument with pro-Palestinian students at a student activities fair. When the students complained to administrators, Klocek was denied the rights that DePaul guarantees to professors accused of wrongdoing and immediately suspended. Statements from DePaul administrators indicate that Klocek was disciplined because of his harsh criticism of the students’ viewpoint, despite DePaul’s stated commitments to free speech and academic freedom. “DePaul has unquestionably violated Professor Klocek’s due process rights, and the university did so because his statements were allegedly offensive,” commented...
