On May 16, 2008 Washington University in St Louis will hold its commencement. Only one woman attending that ceremony should not be receiving a degree. That woman is Phyllis Schlafly.
In response to this announcement, The Coalition for a Responsible Washington University was formed.
While we, a group of students, faculty, and friends of Washington University in St Louis, respect Ms. Schlafly's right to express her views, we believe that her ideology is a contradiction to what our university stands for.
