Title

"And So On -- Letter from Gloria" John Fitch IV Column

Description

In this piece, Cormier recounts how he received a letter from Gloria Steinem advertising the magazine, Ms. He reveals his consistent (if somewhat ambivalent) take on feminism. On the one hand, he states "I have never hidden the fact that I am an unabashed male chauvinist" juxtaposed with "Let me always be considered a dear friend of women." He wants beauty and chivalry, but he also seems to want women to feel free to pursue their own rights. A strange counterbalance of ideas.
