Couldn’t wait to graduate from Castilleja. So much pettiness with no boys to offset the female neurosis. This wasn’t real life, it was like being in a female prison. Girls are taught to be ultra feminists. Feminism has its place but there is a difference between females and males. [Portion removed.]

I misread this to believe for a second that the screen writer was a Casti grad -- as Grace Slick was.
I was going to sugget she write an original treatment about the Donnas.

Hey don't castigate this group of innocents.
Come to think ot if: that's a cool name for the brouhaha over the school expansion: CastiGate.

Also, this might be inappropriate for this thread but it is a true fact and not fake news that when Eve Ensler spoke at Casti the columnist of the local paper Janet Luca Norton wrote about the event without mentioning the name of her most famous book and project.

[Portion removed.] I wish these young women the best and applaud them for thinking about their responsibility to make the world a better place. That is a lot better than many other teens graduating today.
