Transcript Was . .. Eleanor Smeal, past president of the National Organization for Women, has been touring the country as the prime mover behind the Fund for a Feminist Majority. Feminists have a long tradition of fighting for equality, social and economic, justice, and peace. The 19th Century feminists, led by Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Staton, and Susan B. Anthony fought for women's suffrage and equality for social reforms such as the elimination of child labor, the promotion of temperance, public education, health care, human services and the abolition of slavery and the end of racism. Over the years, from 1970 to 1980s support for the women's movement efforts has gone from a bare plurality to a solid majority. Early 20th Century feminists were world leaders in the fight for women's suffrage and continued to fight against the excesses of the industrial revolution. They fought for fair labor standards, for social reforms to end poverty, and promote human services and world peace. "The U.S. repeatedly attempted to back the Nicaraguan government, but in the absence of any success, it tried backing the Con- tras. The U.S. never imagined the Contras are a force fighting for the U.S." — Jean Kirkpa- trick Former U.S. Ambassador to the UN The total compliance to a Central American peace accord by the Nicaraguan government is uncertain, said former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Jean Kirkpatrick. Despite the signing of the accord by the five Central American presidents, including Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua has been slower than its neighbors to implement reform. Signed Aug. 7, the accord calls for democratic reforms in each country as well as a system of political pluralism in all of Central America. The agreement also calls for free elections and a cease-fire in guerrilla wars by Nov. 7. Kirkpatrick, who served as U.N. ambassador for the first four years of the Reagan administration, no longer holds political office. She said America's stake in Nicaragua is greater than most people conceive. "Whenever you think about the CIA, keep in mind money, because money is what it all comes down to." — Philip Agee former CIA officer Former CIA officer, Philip Agee said that payoffs, torture and the overthrow of foreign governments were just a few of the subversive activities he witnessed while with the CIA. After serving 12 years, Agee resigned from the service in 1969. Agee was on campus promoting his book On the Run. He said that he was harassed by the CIA for his books and the agency attempted to take away his First Amendment rights by forcing him to keep a secrecy agreement about his work. A CIA spokesperson said that the Supreme Court has upheld the agency's right to review material written by CIA agents so that it can protect its methods and contacts in the field. Agee said that the CIA operations in foreign countries are designed to weaken and destroy the opposition, usually made up of left-wing Democratic supporters, Socialists and Communists. The CIA continues to recruit at this university and 12 of the 14 people interviewed this fall were recruited. Speakers 19
