Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933), U.S. pediatrician and educator; first woman (and second African American) Surgeon General of the United States. As quoted in the New York Times Magazine, p. 19 (January 30, 1994).
Elders, who was U. S. Surgeon General at the time, was a passionate advocate of the controversial practice of providing contraceptives to teenagers. This was her reaction to being contemptuously nicknamed the "condom queen" by the Traditional Values Coalition, a conservative lobbying organization.
