In Response to: A Striking Similarity [6]

After reading about Katherine Milkman ’04’s fascinating research in the Oct. 26 issue, why on Earth would Max Maizels ’72 decide to comment on her appearance (Inbox, Dec. 7)? And why would PAW print such a letter? Comments like Maizels’ undermine women by implying that no matter how much we accomplish intellectually, our appearance is all that really matters. More than half a century after women entered Princeton, we deserve better.
