The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), claimed victory today in the patriarchal war against women being waged at the local level at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Read the press release here:
I am intrigued by FIRE’s claim that they helped to bring about the victory. I had suspected for several weeks that they had become involved in the complaint and appeal process, and wonder how much influence they had over the university’s decision.
On the bright side, many people have expressed their outrage against the university’s decision to support sexism. Several women students have courageously stepped forward to discuss possible resistance strategies. They are the real freedom fighters.
