Transcript BROADSIDE Page 3 FCC TASK TORCE REPORT ON MONITORING: Voting at the Tanuary business meeting made the FCC a priority project for the membership until license filing and renewal time. Our monitoring project will be carefully explained at the February 6 program meeting. All members must attend! Details of our monitoring results and negotiation progress will not appear in (BROADSIDE) print until it is expedient to do so — for obvious reasons. ON CONSCIOUSNESS RAISING: CR has been part of our PR in meetings with station management. With one exception (on a first but not succeeding visit) we have been met with courtesy, as well as a good bit of curiosity. One station manager asked if his wife could sit in on our meeting. At this same station we were served coffee by a male staff member — wearing an apron. And when the manager said, "Well, ladies, I brought my girls here" , (referring to two women employees in management positions) and adding, "I want you to know we have more girl reporters than any other station" , we knew where we had to begin. And, politely, we asked that henceforth he use the term women, and that the same consciousness should apply to staff positions -- anchor, weather, and newspersons. One of the most important points we stress is that women's rights are an outgrowth of the civil rights movement. While ten years ago talk show hosts, even bigots, would not think of asking, "What do you think of civil rights?" (ha-ha-ha implied), the running gag question in the 70's seems to be, "What d'ya think of women's lib?" . When Hazel Bracken appeared on Steve & Co. (Channel 11, Tanuary 16) to defend and explain her sexist attitudes, she was the sole guest at the audience call-in time. Whe.n Gertrude Barnstone was on two days later for equal time, she was joined by comedian Tom Poston at the call-in period. When the phones failed mechanically, instead of addressing a serious question to Barnstone, Edwards turned to Poston and asked that same running gag question. Poston-the-comic picked up on it. Edwards said at a break, "Well, we're just rolling along". Off-camera, GB was heard to say, "Downhill". After the program, Channel 11 producer Tonni Hartman called and arranged a two-part interview between Gertrude Barnstone and Hazel Bracken on Maxine Messenger's BRUNCH •■WITH MAXINE (Tanuary 27, February 3). At the taping MM began with, "Well, ladies, here we are — three women who have made it in a man's world". GB interjected that a better way to think about it was a peoples' world. At a break MM said, "Well, we'll be back with some more girl talk". After the commercial GB said on-camera, "You know, Maxine, when you said girl, I thought you meant we were going to talk about young girls school. Why, what we are talking about is women talk — peoples' talk". i may never think you know when you have raised someone's consciousness but never stop trying. Letters are one way — personal meetings another. We will need volunteers to meet with every public affairs moderator and talk show host/hostess. Sign up on the FCC form included with this issue. ON PROGRAMMING: Statistics from "Same Time, Same Station, Same Sexism" (Ms. , December 1973) read as follows. Of 62 network evening shows which have regular appearing performers, 48 have only male protagonists, 8 have men/women sharing the lead, and only 6 shows have women progatonists. "Here's Lucy", "Diana", "The Mary
