Transcript ver the subjects or issues women discussed?" Forum 80 Reply: "He was working but we've told him about it. By the way, he is silver-haired, elegant and...shamefaced." Fran Hosken, publisher and editor of Win News (Women's International Network News) wrote: The Forum 80 newspaper amazingly turned out to be edited by two men. The astonishing fact emerged that at a women's conference where more than 1,000 women reporters as well as large numbers of editors and publishers were accredited, the representative of the NGOs who sponsored the Forum 80 newspaper gave two men the responsibility of the publication of this newspaper, and at least half the articles were written by men. Rosalynn Harris, the NGO representative, told WIN NEWS that "no experienced women editors, publishers, reporters were available." Feminist publications from around the world thought otherwise. Several of them voiced their sentiments in a letter to Forum 80 (July 28): "We, the undersigned, from the following feminist publications, would like to register our protest to the organizers of the NGO Forum about the way that feminist groups and publications have been dealt with. 1) It is a matter of great concern to us that many of the major feminist magazines and papers were not even informed about the conference. They were not even sent a handout to publicize that such a conference was taking place. We feel strongly that all these publications should have been officially invited to attend and cover the conference. 2) This attitude of bypassing is reflected throughout the conference. A good example: It seems that the NGO Forum found it necessary to invite a distinguished male journalist to be the editor of the NGO newspaper when it would have been a unique opportunity to bring together many of the women here involved in writing on women's issues. We feel that this task of covering a women's conference should legitimately have been the responsibility of feminist journalists."

A reading of several issues of Forum 80 confirmed that the publication was indeed guilty as charged. The cartoons and photographs were particularly offensive, and the stories tended to patronize. Landau reports that women were not asked to edit the newspaper to avoid "controversy over First World/U.S. domination." It is ironic then that the male editor was British, and the bulk of the stories and cartoons carried such First- World bylines as John Rowley, Tony Hall and David Willson. This find-the-right-man-for-the-job mentality reminds one of the 1976 presidential debates, the culmination of months of organizing by the League of Women Voters. After all the hard work was done, the starring role of moderator was awarded to Howard K. Smith.
