Transcript NOW broadsidE HOUSTON CHAPTER NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN Vol. 5, No. 3 BROADSIDE March 1974 MEDIA IS GETTING THE MESSAGE "I do not use the term 'women's liberation' to refer to the movement. I don't because the media has made it a perversion. Have you heard broadcasters use the phrase 'Black Lib' or 'Chicano Lib' or 'Indian Lib' to describe these civil rights movements? Or describe the participants in these movements as 'Libbers'? I don't really have to tell you that the language used by broadcasters is in itself critically influential in determining how the public perceives movements such as these and the language used to describe the women's movement until fairly recently was without any semblance of respect. . . It is perhaps particularly important for media people to recognize this larger agenda, these long-range goals of the women's movement. I suspect that many in the media regarded 'women's liberation' as a one-season spectacular. But we have no intention of fading away — we are here to stay. It is also, I might add, because of our broad platform for social change that we believe feminists have a fresh perspective to bring to discussions of national issues in the broadcast media. I will point out that women are not a special interest group in the usual sense of the term. We are half the population. When the image of women presented in the media is offensive, it is offensive to women of all social classes, races, religions, and ethnic origins. Aside from 'equal pay' the offensive image of women in the media has been our most unifying issue with which to recruit women." Remarks made by Virginia Carabillo, NOW Vice President for Public Relations, before the Radio Code Review Board in November 1973
