Nadine Strossen

former president of the American Civil Liberties Union


It's common to say that we have to choose between freedom of speech or equality, that if you really care about equality you can't possibly be devoted to the First Amendment. I absolutely reject that as a philosophical matter and as a practical matter in the hate-speech context. ...I think it's insulting to women, racial minorities--to anybody--to say that we have to choose between freedom of speech and equal opportunity.
