Excellent...

This is very fine...

As female college activist groups go, the Network of Enlightened Women, or NeW, is a very different breed. They don't distribute condoms on the Quad or march for a woman's right to choose. Instead, they bake chocolate chip cookies and protest campus productions of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, a controversial play about female sexuality that conservatives say degrades women and glorifies rape.

Barely two years old, NeW is a small but fast-growing campus alternative to the Feminist Majority and the National Organization of Women, with a foothold in seven states. More importantly, it has already gained the attention and support of the most powerful conservative women in Washington....

....How to deal with the rise of NeW is on the agenda at this week's National Women's Studies Association Conference. On Thursday, a panel will discuss how traditionally liberal campus women's centers can respond to conservative women and NeW in particular....

"Respond." Yes indeed, how are the harridans going to respond? Isn't this one of those thingamajigs where you deal with it in five stages?

Thanks to Lastango, who adds;

...NeW emphasizes its support for women who want to raise a family in a traditional relationship. A NeW chapter on campus would mean a likeminded, conservative gentleman would have a good idea where he might meet his soulmate. That ought to help NeW build its membership...

Ha ha! Too rich. Choke on it, Chomskys. And all with the publicity they are getting, NeW will probably have another 20 chapters by the end of this month...
