Transcript HOW BROADSIDE HOUSTON CHAPTER NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN Vol. 4. No. 12 BROADSIDE December 1973 THE FCC TASK FORCE IS ALIVE AND WELL by Janice Blue Force yourself one day — on sick leave or on an off-day — to watch daytime television, the 9 to 3 wasteland! Choose one channel and stay with it the full time or, if you have access to more than one, do as the super-serious football fans and catch two or three stations at the same time. Take notes. Pay special attention to the ads. Record your impressions and then share them with the FCC Task Force at their December 11 meeting. Those of you who "grew up with television", as they say, will note that nothing has changed in 25 years. The soap operas, quiz games, and local "ladies' shows" are still as sexist and demeaning as ever! The commercials that come with these programs serve to remind the audience (mainly women, or "housewives") that they are the consumers, not the producers of the society. And nothing will change in the next three years without your efforts. The FCC Task Force is taking full advantage of the timing of its campaign to affect changes in total programming and across-the-board employment of women in broadcasting in light of the upcoming license renewals (summer of '74 for a three-year period) from the Federal Communications Commission. We have a committed core ready to begin work with the local television stations, but we need womanpower to reach each and every radio station in this area. We have agreed on a set of demands which will dramatically affect programming and employment (and we will publish our platform in the BROADSIDE after we have met with television representatives). We are encouraged at the onset by the support of our National FCC Committee who have pledged assistance to local chapters in gathering evidence, filing petitions to deny licenses to broadcasters, and insuring that the FCC guarantee fair treatment of women (image, programming, and employment) in the broadcasting industry. We have seen evidence of their strength and support in the New York/ Washington/Columbia, S.C.- NOW petitions against broadcasters. And, we have witnessed the impact our chapters around the country have had on broadcasters in their areas. continued
