Afghanistan's Women Needed Leno's Publicity

November 29, 1998

Re the letter from Doris Melnick printed Nov. 22 ("I'm sorry, but Jay and Mavis Leno's donation of $100,000 just doesn't deserve all the publicity. I figure with his salary, that would be the equivalent of me giving $50. Big deal."):

If Doris Melnick would look past the nose she turned up at the Leno donation, she would realize that while Jay Leno does not need the publicity, the fight for oppressed women in Afghanistan desperately does. I had been concerned about the Taliban's treatment of women but until the Leno donation had not known exactly what to do about it. Thanks to the publicity, I now know what to do: Send a donation to the Feminist Majority Foundation, 8105 W. 3rd St., Los Angeles, CA 90048.

I hope Doris will be sending her $50, too.
