"Epicene" pronouns

I remember a good deal of discussion of this subject in radical circles in the 1970s. We never could seem to agree on a candidate for a gender-neutral pronoun. Some feminists felt that eliminating he and she--particularly she--would detract from women's uniqueness. Someone proposed that we use "she" one day for everyone, and "he" the next--equal time as it were.
