future college girls? (Karen)

Now here are some future college girls for you!

It seems to me that there are at least two scary aspects to this video clip, which some people think are funny and some are horrified by!

The first is that these girls are in an elite school, a school that has been pronounced by the powers that be as outstanding. 19 out of 20 had no clue what suffrage is! What does this tell us?

Secondly, why were they so willing to sign something without knowing what it meant?

Any thoughts on what this has to do with educating women?

Also, I would like to remind people, again, that this is not a far-fetched view. As I mentioned in a earlier post, places like Vision Forum are supporting the notion that universal suffrage should be abolished.

    So what would happen if a girl was walking around that campus asking guys to sign a petition to end male sufferage? I'm pretty sure that we'd probably get the same ratio of people who actually knew what sufferage was.

    That's just sad. How can you get past the age of ten without knowing what suffrage is? I'm not so sure that this is a commentary on girls' education so much as it's a commentary on the state of education on what it means to be a citizen.

    As I noted on my blog, I think that these girls do it to be accomodating and I think this is what get's them into trouble with preditors. But I also think they are not well-educated. I asked my daughter and her friends about this and the friends didn't know what it was, but Sarah did since she had just read a book a Susan B. Anthony. These kids are in middle school.
