Dialogue in Nairobi / Sylvia Borren; produced by Helene Rosenbluth.

In July 1985, more than 14,000 women gathered in Nairobi, Kenya for the UN's Third World Conference on Women, which marked the end of the Decade for Women. The conference marked a decided evolution from the 1975 International Women's Conference in Mexico City, which was dominated by middle-class white women. Sylvia Borren of the International Lesbian Information Service ("ILIS") talks with KPFK's Helene Rosenbluth about "the lavender connection" - the role of lesbians and Third World women in the women's movement. Kenyan women attending the conference ask Borren questions after her talk. Produced by Helene Rosenbluth.

Stop E.R.A.: Meg Katz interviewed by Bonnie Bellow

Bonnie Bellow interviews Meg Katz of "Stop E.R.A.", one of the groups opposed to the passage of New York's Equal Rights Amendment. Katz details how she thinks an amendment would hurt women, make them responsible for their husband's mistakes and not give them legal backup if they need it. She names groups that she believes have funded the pro-E.R.A. movement. Passage of the E.R.A. will benefit "big business" by taking away legal protections for women's labor. Women have their legal protections and work rights now. Don't need to change the State Constitution, need legislation to correct any problems. The ERA will break up a family. NOW women shout they will restructure society, we don't need the family restructured. Children need fathers and mothers and their training. [please see label for more information] Very lively discussion.

The Crippled Person / lecture and interview with Dr. Carl Faber (Episode 1 of 4)

This is the first episode "The Crippled Person" in a four part series of lectures by Dr. Carl Faber entitled "Woman as slave." This episode is in three parts. In part one, Dr. Faber is interviewed prior to KPFK's presentation of the first lecture by Helene Rosenbluth, a young lesbian feminist and Roy Tuckman, male feminist, about what he means to say in the lecture series, his motivations, audience reactions, the situation of a man talking to women about women, his data sources, and male versus female feeling experience.

Part two is the lecture portion of this episode, Dr. Faber's "The Crippled Person," given in January 1977. In this lecture, Faber says men can't define women's roles and that psychology is piggish. The deal with men has been for women to be crippled, allowed various thoughts and roles and disallowed others. The essence of woman's experience of self is hurt and impotence, which may overwhelm her entire life. At the same time, her slave master man leans on her for self respect and love, which makes her hate him more. The essential problem: women are ripped off.

Part three is the second interview of Dr. Faber by Rosenbluth and Tuckman about how men can avoid abusing women and being sexist; women working alone versus women in a group; coupleism versus groupism; definitions of vulnerability; ego defense; and eastern versus western philosophical points of view. Instructions given "This interview should be played right after lecture #1 (Part 2). There is an introduction to lecture #2 at the end, so the announcer should indicated when lecture #2 will be broadcast."

Interviews with Dr. Faber were recorded in March 1977. Program produced by Roy Tuckman.
