property ownership or from a militaristic
reason, Steinem said, it is not natural.
"Patriarchy is not biological, it is not
immutable, it wasn't alwavsthere,"she said.
"The main value of understanding, of
thinking about this past, is to freeour imag-
ination to understand that if it wasn't always
this way it can be different in the future."
9 Steinem also addressed the issue of
race, which she said is "sexualized,"
while "sex is racialized." Misogynation
was only punished when it involved a
white woman and a black man, because
white women were symbols of purity,
while women of color were over-sexu-
alized and seen as a source of more
cheap labor, she said.
"Race-mixing becomes the means of
obliterating the racial caste system,'
Steinem said. "That redoubles the need
S have a patriarchal system of having

women be the means of reproduction."
She said that although elderly and hand-
icapped people are often desexualized
because they can't reproduce, and that
many organized religions view sex only as
a means of reproduction, sexuality is "a
part of our humanity" and human sex was
"never meant only for reproduction."
Reproductive freedom, which she
said includes sterilization and legal
abortions, is hindered by right-wing
conservatives who contribute to the
idea that patriarchal marriage is the
norm, she said.
Steinem urged listeners to get rid of
patriarchal thinking and the idea that
sex is only good inside marriage.
"It's in front of us," she said. "We
know this but we don't have a critical
means of consciousness that is contend-
ing with this politicization of sexuality."
Ann Arbor Mayor Ingrid Sheldon,
who attended Steinem's speech, said the
feminist's legendary involvement in

issues of women's rights and equality
have allowed young people to benefit
from her efforts today.
Sheldon added that Steinem's female
perspective on the subject of sexuality
has great relevance in the mostly male-
dominated world of elective, legislative
and medical research areas of politics.
LSA junior Trevor Boyer said he
agreed with Steinem's views.
"There is a backlash against feminism
in the country right now, Boyer said. "I
think it's important for men to be able to
call themselves feminists, and that's a
point she drove home tonight."
LSA senior Melissa Walsh called
Steinem a "major force in the second
wave of feminism;' which she said has
had a huge effect on the atmosphere of
the nation today.
"The concept of feminism and what
we have today is due very much to what
women like Gloria Steinem did 20
years ago," Walsh said.

support it because it aids women of
every race and men of color," she
said. "It's about social justice in gen-
eral."
Steinem said selection "biases," such
as accepting children of alumni, have
always been used in college admissions.
But she separated those kind of "bias-
es" with what affirmative action does.
The only difference between accept-
ing the children of alumni and aiding
women and minorities through affirma-
tive action is that affirmative action
"actually, enlarges the talent pool,"
Steinem said.
She added that people must remem-
ber that "it's not meant to last forever,
it's a compensation for past centuries of
discrimination."
Despite the advancements of women
during the past 30 years women still

have about 70 years to go, Steinem said.
She added that "to make a lasting mark
on society, social justice movements
have to last 100 years.
"Now that we have achieved legal
identity we have to achieve equality,"
such as "the gap in wages and the fact
that most of the work that women do
isn't even considered work," Steinem
said.
She said she staunchly believes
that equality has to be achieved in
both women's public and private
lives.

Women have proved they O
what men can do "but we d et
know that men can do what wootntan
do," Steinem said.
She said many women feel that
they must juggle a career and family
and that the only way to reach quali-
ty is for a man to hax e the santprob-
lems. Steinem added that men~also
have to balance their careers arifam-
ilies.
"Feminism is whatever each of us
have in our hearts and in our hopes;'
she said.
