Interview with Paula Giddings
QUESTION 14
JUDY RICHARDSON:

What impact did the campaign of Robin Gregory have on you personally?

PAULA GIDDINGS:

I remember being very excited about her campaign.

JUDY RICHARDSON:

Say Robin Gregory.

PAULA GIDDINGS:

Ah, I remember being very excited about Robin Gregory's campaign. I'd always felt that there was something wrong with that, that other kind of, of, of traditional ritual that was going on. But at the same time I had divided loyalties because I was a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and we had our own candidate who was a very good friend of mine and who I worked on the campaign with. So we had these, ah, and many of us had these, these feelings back and forth. But all of us with divided loyalties or not felt very excited about, about Robin's campaign and about what it symbolized, not just in terms of politics, what it mean in terms of what women should be doing as well, the role of women, it was very, very important to us.
