Women: An Appalling Situation

Dear Editors:

In response to Atmavani Dasi's letter on the Women's Page: "Apology Accepted and Thank You," all I can say is that while the GBC's historical apology to women is a welcome step, it is absolutely appalling that women in ISKCON have to "negotiate" their fundamental spiritual and human rights from essentially an all-male group that controls the Governing Commission of ISKCON.

Until ISKCON changes its gender-specific marginalization of women in the name of "honor, tradition, and religion," women will continue to be nothing more than the second sex.

Haribol,

Mira Mishra
