Code foes encircle

Feminist calls women
better leaders than men
By KAREN TENSA
Eleven activists encircled the
Fleming Administration Building with
blue crepe paper yesterday to protest
the proposed non-academic code for
The demonstration, organized by the
Student Rights Coalition, was a rehear-
sal for an even larger protest planned
for Friday morning, said spokesperson
THE PROTEST began at 11:45 and
lasted for about 20 minutes. The
rotestors wound the crepe paper
around the building, walked around
several times, and then went through
Few administrators saw the protest,
but those going in and out of the
building went under the blue banner
without making any comments.
Yesterday's strong winds marred the
protest by tearing the crepe paper and
ripping it from the hands of the
"It's a symbolic action of tying up the
University," said Godre. "We feel
bound by the code.
"WE'RE protesting the regents
trying to bypass the Bylaw 7.02," she
The Regents' Bylaw 7.02 guarantees
the right of the Michigan Student
Assembly 'and the Faculty Senate to
reject or renegotiate any portion of the
code. University President Harold
Shapiro has proposed to the Board of
Regents that they consider suspending
the bylaw in order to adopt the code.
"On Friday, we hope people won't go
to class, profs won't hold classes,
people will show up on the diag at 8:30
to help in the protest," said Godre.
"We're going to make a picket line
around the campus and ask people not
to cross it," she said.
IF THERE aren't enough students to
physically string blue yarn around the
main campus, Godre said, there are
"contingency plans" to picket on the
most crossed paths on campus, like the
West Engineering arch and the main
entrances to major classroom
Under the proposed code, student
could be punished for acts such as ar-
son, sexual harassment, assault, theft,
vandalism, and some types of civil
disobedience - acts that the University
has traditionally left to civil authorities
or police to enforce. The penalties
range from work projects to explusion.

Women may not have all the answers
to world problems, but they would do a
better job of ?running the country than
men, feminist Sonia Johnson told a
crowd of 90 at Rackham Auditorium
Johnson, who is the presidential can-
didate for the Citizen's Party, said male
leaders' pride often prevents them
from compromising and reaching ef-
fective solutions to the nation's
BUT WOMEN have an advantage
because they are experts on listening
and understanding opposing points of
views, said Johnson, 47, who was ex-
pelled from the Mormon Church in 1979
for her vocal stands on the Equal
Men can't communicate because
listening is considered womanly, John-
son said. "What male culture sees as
strength is really weakness.
"We have a bunch of bullies running
the world. It's a playground out there."
NOT ENOUGH "real" women,
however, are involved in politics, John-
son said. Currently only "female im-
personators" such as Margaret That-
cher are the leading women in politics,
While men criticize women for being
too emotional and say they would
crumble under pressure, Johnson said
those qualities actually make women
better qualified leaders.
And men may be just as emotional as
women, Johnson said, but they display
it in a different manner.
"ALL THAT talk about women being
too emotional is ridiculous. How many
times have you seen a statesman barge
out of a meeting because he couldn't
stay high in the saddle and save face?
"All of us react out of emotions. We
need to better understand our own
feelings and others. (People) operate
on emotions, not intellect."
"We must begin to love and honor
emotions. We must not try to be a white
man and oppress, but have pride in
being a woman," she said.
JOHNSON SAID she would not run
for president on a major party's ticket
because the Democrats and
Republicans are guardians of the status
Women need to become more radical
to change the power balance in the
current U.S. political system, she said.
"Maybe we can be something dif-
ferent - a new structure.
"Women are experts in understan-
ding others feelings, right now this is
needed. We know what must be done.
"As long as God is male, we can't
have peace," Johnson said.
In order to get on the November
ballot, Johnson must collect 19,000
signatures by May 7, she said. Johnson
must also raise $5,000 in 10 states by
June 1 to receive matching funds from
the Federal Election Commission.
The local Citizen's Party sponsoring
Johnson's speech Sunday collected
about $1,000, she said.
