I’m at the part in the Flo Kennedy book where she goes on the Canadian feminist television show, “Some of My Best Friends Are Men.” There is a picture of the whole staff and Flo, all wearing tshirts with wings that form a vagina, from which the symbol for “woman” dangles. SOLID GOLD.
I went looking for more info on the show and I discovered FLO KENNEDY HAD A SHOW AS WELL. Obviously viewing this is a priority. It’s funny that Flo’s papers are housed at Harvard, the place where she led a mass urination protest about the fact that they had so few women’s bathrooms.
“It has never been my thesis that women are necessarily good. I’ve never thought that oppression makes people better; oppression, in my opinion, is not good for you. And women are already sneaky and hostile and oppressive. They beat up their kids, they yell at the butcher, they mistreat their parents—they’re just as pathological as everyone else. Otherwise, it would appear that people are improved by oppression, and I don’t believe that.”
Also, Crystal found an episode of Family Ties that her guide describes thusly: “Alex becomes an ERA supporter to woo a feminist.”
