Finding even the less formal Tribune too constricting for real communication, non-governmental delegates to the 1975 U.N. International Women's Year Conference organized "Global speak-outs." This is the First Global Speak-Out, held Monday, June 23. Even at this first attempt to circumvent the political divisions at the conference, ideological, racial, and nationalistic differences emerged. The speak-out begins with comments from Betty Friedan. The Conference was held in Mexico City from June 19-July 2, 1975. This documentary was produced by Barbara Cady.
