When Will We Stand Up?

Posted: 2004-07-11

Teachers and parents unhappy with government school policy could learn something from Corrine Grad Coleman.

On July 11, 2004, a New York Times obituary noted the passing of Corrine Grad Coleman, a radical feminist:

Ms. Coleman was also one of the leaders of a daylong occupation of the Ladies' Home Journal editorial office by more than 100 feminists in 1970. The women demanded a chance to put out a "liberated" issue and the replacement of the editor and publisher, John Mack Carter. The magazine, which had a circulation of 6.9 million, agreed to let the women publish a special section.
Now, which offices should we occupy first?

When will we do it?
