Her research has shaped the pre-
sent legal view on sexual harass-
ment. MacKinnon has also taken an
active role in working to implement
local laws throughout the country
that define pornography as a viola-
tion of women's rights.
Umphrey said it is difficult for
activist faculty members to get
positions in the academia. "The legal
system itself is a conservative insti-
tution," she said. "It is more reactive

than proactive. To that extent, any
sort of challenge to the legal
institution is looked on with suspi-
cion. MacKinnon challenges the
fundamental assumptions of the law
itself."
MacKinnon has been working to
redefine pornography as an issue of
sexual discrimination, as opposed to
its present categorization as a first
amendment issue. For example,
MacKinnon is trying to make it
possible, for women who have been
hurt by pornography, to sue, said
Umphrey.
WLSA has been circulating

petitions to increase the number of
women among tenured faculty. Cur-
rently, of about 40 tenured faculty at
the law school, only four are
women.
"I think she's the foremost femi-
nist legal scholar," said Law Prof.
Christina Whitman. "There has been
a very big student demand for
coursework on feminist theory."
The Law School faculty initially
made the offer to MacKinnon about
two weeks ago. The law school
deans will take the recommendation
to Provost Charles Vest for ap-
proval.

The University's Board of Re-
gents approves final appointments
on tenured faculty members.
It is unusual for the University to
offer a full-tenured position before a
faculty member has taught for at
least one semester. The offer is also
unprecedented because feminists who
argue that legal systems are male-
biased often have trouble getting
tenure, said WLSA members.
MacKinnon has taught at seven
law schools in the last 10 years.
WLSA, along with several other
student groups, lobbied faculty to

offer MacKinnon the position.
"The offer is part of a continuing
push by students and some faculty to
alter the makeup of the faculty so
that it includes people of color and
women. In particular, women with
substantive views as strong as those
of MacKinnon," said WLSA and
National Lawyer's Guild member
KristintVandenBerg, a third-year law
student.
"We've seen so little progress,"
said VandenBerg. "This is quite an
important political achievement."
But Associate Law School Dean
Ed Cooper denied that the offer to
MacKinnon was in any way related
to student organizing.
"She is extraordinarily accom-
plished in an area in which many of
the members of the faculty already
have an interest," he said. "Having
her here will be of immense benefit
to students, faculty, and the Univer-
sity community as a whole."

Verses debate
hits remote
MI school
MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) -
The international furor surrounding
The Satanic Verses reached this Up-
per Peninsula city when Moslem
students sought to ban the book
from the Northern Michigan
University library.
Officials at the 8,2000-student
school said they would accept a copy
of the book, despite a Moslem stu-
dent leader's characterization of
British author Salman Rushdie's
novel as "indefensible vulgarity."
The Satanic Verses has generated
worldwide protest by Moslems of-
fended by its depictions of the
prophet Mohammed and other key
Islamic figures. Rushdie has been in
hiding since mid-February.

tee, one of the city council's stand-
ing committees of which she is a
Oiember, does not meet often
enough.
Currently the committee meets
every three or four months.
"There are a number of places
where student concerns and city con-
Ierns cross," she said.
Much of the work she has done
on council is similar to student ac-
tivist work. She and fellow coun-

cilmember Larry Hunter (D-First
Ward) implemented a racism training
program for the local police force.
Another issue which concerns
Coleman is low-income housing.
Coleman would like a mutual
housing association for low-income
citizens established. The associations
are similar to a co-op, with residents
owning or renting part of the build-
ing;
But Coleman does not just focus
her energies on issues with a campus
orientation. As with other council
members, the city's budget deficit
concerns Coleman. The city is fac-

Coleman said many city services
would have to be cut to stay within
budgetary limits.
"I think we are going to have to
look at the level of services that oc-
curs in this community," she said,
"It's a really hard judgment call. For
instance, one of my concerns is we
have a very small budget for human
services."
Coleman would like to see the
city administrator take an even-
handed approach to the budget cuts.

Protest

tears in their eyes.
Pro-choice protesters tried to
reach the clinic doors and form a
corridor so patients with
appointments could get through.
Others picketed in the parking lot
with signs and a loudspeaker,
declaring, "Not the church, not the
state, women must decide their fate."
The pro-choicers tried to carry the
anti-abortion protesters out of an
alley where they were blocking the
side door to the clinic. The anti-
abortion protesters resisted by going
limp, making it difficult to move
them.
Second-year Residential College
student Genevieve Wilson said once
when some pro-choicers tried to
remove anti-abortion protesters who
were blocking the alley, police
jumped in to protect them.
"(The police) used their elbows.
Either you ducked or you got it in
the ribs," Wilson said.
"I think the police made a
conscious effort to keep that clinic
closed," Scheff said. She added that
the clinic could not have been closed
without help from the police.
But pastor Al Kresta, an anti-
abortion protester, said he thought
the police acted very slowly. He said
one person in his group was taken to
the hospital, and someone was bitten
severely on the hand.
"In the past, all of our work with
the police has been very
cooperative," he said. He stressed
that his group is opposed to violence
and none have ever been arrested U

assault.
Nationwide, hundreds of anti-
abortion protesters from the group
known as Operation Rescue were
arrested in demonstrations on what
they dubbed "National Rescue Day"
on Good Friday.
Krestasaid the Oak Park anti-
abortion protesters were not part of
Operation Rescue, but they pattern
themselves on the rescue movement.
"We believe that by helping to

close the clinic, peacefully and
prayfully, we will deter some
women from having abortions,"
Kresta said.
Scheff said all the women who
were scheduled to have abortions
Friday were accommodated at other
clinics.
Kresta acknowledged that it was
illegal for the protesters to shut
down the clinic.
