9. Finally, why did you refuse to cosponsor Christina Hoff Sommers? Some more information on her work is copied below – just before my final question to the feminists at Bucknell.

Christina Hoff Sommers is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C. She has been a professor of philosophy at Clark University since 1981. She specializes in ethics and contemporary moral theory and has published many scholarly articles in such journals as the Journal of Philosophy and the New England Journal of Medicine. Sommers is editor of Vice and Virtue in Everyday Life -- one of the most popular ethics textbooks in the country. She became known to the wider public as the author of Who Stole Feminism? How Women Have Betrayed Women. Her book The War Against Boys received widespread attention and praise and was excerpted for a cover story in the Atlantic Monthly. It was included in the New York Times "Notable Books of the Year" in 2000. Her most recent book, One Nation Under Therapy, co-written with Dr. Sally Satel, has received a great deal of attention and critical acclaim.

Her articles have also appeared in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, USA Today, the National Review, the New Republic, and the Weekly Standard.

Sommers has appeared on programs such as Nightline, ABC Evening News, the Oprah Winfrey Show –and twice on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. During her appearances she would discuss such topics such as moral education, the strengths and weaknesses of the women’s movement, the plight of boys in the nation’s schools, and one nation under therapy. Profiles of her have appeared in the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the London Times.

10. Once again Professor Faull, (faull@bucknell.edu) why did you refuse to cosponsor Christina Hoff Sommers’ speech at Bucknell? Was it a simple case of intellectual bigotry? Or was it because Dr. Sommers is not a prostitute?
