Judge speaks on equality issue
By GREG MEENHAN
Closing the International Women's Decade, Federal Judge
Ruth Ginsburg said yesterday that laws involving men and
women in the United States are changing due to societal
"Changes in the law always come after changes in
society," said Ginsburg, in her Hutchins Hall speech. The
best way for women to reach equality is for men to take more
responsibility in child rearing, she said.
SHE CITED a case where a woman was denied a job
because she had children of pre-school age. After lengthy
supreme court trial, the case was decided in the woman's
Ginsburg also said that men have fostered the idea of
discrimination by developing laws designed to protect the
"weaker of the species."
On abortion, Ginsburg said, "I have to say that a woman
has the right to decide what happens to her body." She said
she was surprised that the legalization of abortion caused
such a violent reaction.
"IT'S TERRIBLE that the backlash to the Supreme
Court's decision will only affect only one class of
people-poor women," said Ginsburg.
Both the state House and Senate have voted to ban
Kim Lane Schippele, political science and sociology in-
structor, was responsible for Ginsburg's appearance. She
said, "I thought it was very appropriate that she spoke on the
closing of the International Woman's Decade. She has been
at the forefront of every important discrimination case that
has come up before the U.S. courts."
Lisa Danto, a nursing school graduate told of reverse
discrimination at the University during the question and an-,
swer period, "I brought it up to the dean in '83 that there was
no men's restroom in the nursing building. They did finally
change and gave the men one room. But last year it was
gone, and there still is no men's restroom."
Judge Ginsburg didn't comment on the situation, instead
she cited other cases of reverse discrimination.
Ginsburg has written for magazines such as Playboy and
Cosmopolitan and has co-authored the book, Sex-Based

"We haven't made any tremendous
efforts to increase circulation. It's
ridiculous. We're not committed
enough to ourselves, the Daily, or our
readers to exhaust our options," said
managing editor Georgea Kovanis.
Kovanis said she would like to see the
Daily do a market survey of its readers
and get a circulation manager before
resorting to free distribution.

distribution method a market analysis
will be done.
The Daily's business manager, Liz
Carson, saidthat the paper's marketing
manager already serves in a capacity
similar to that of a circulation manager
and that the name is only a technicality.
Circulation is down several hundred
subscribers over last year, Carson said.
"IT'S A VERY good business move
and a very good editorial move," Car-
son said, referring to the switch to free
Carson said she feels the move will
get more students to read the paper.
"There's a real pride in having students
talking about the Daily around cam-
pus," she said.
The 95-year-old history of the Daily is
marked by editorial freedom,
recognition as one of the top college
papers in the nation, and paid subscrip-
Losing that quality worries some
"The main problem I have with free
drop is that when the last staff on a
paid Daily leaves, the tradition of the
Daily as a competitor with the Ann Ar-
bor News and the Detroit Free Press
will no longer be there," said reporter
"The quality is bound to suffer.
People will get lazy because they will
know people will be reading the paper
regardless of the editorial quality,"
