"When Carmichael was confronted during a SNCC conference by black women
concerned about their roles and what they saw as sexism, he abruptly ended
the discussion by stating, “The only position for women in the movement is
prone.“ Cleaver, a convicted rapist, was worse, for he implemented a
philosophy termed “Pussy Power” whereby the Panthers pimped out their women
for the cause."

This can't be. I _was_ at that convention, and while the Chicago
Panthers that spoke did express unacceptable positions on women,
Stokeley Carmichael very definitely was _not_ there. I'm not sure he
ever spoke at any SDS gathering. Are you sure you don't have a SNCC
convention in mind.
