Episode Title:
Education for the weaker sex (Episode 3 of 7)
PRA Archive #: 

Marjorie Uren, a graduate student in English at the University of California (Berkeley) and part time instructor of English at Stanford speaks on "Education for the weaker sex" at a teach-in on the oppression of women at San Francisco State College on December 10, 1969. Uren talks about the passive discrimination in textbooks and children's books, through their failure to include equal representation of all races and sexes, and through the different character traits that are traditionally assigned to male and female characters. Technical note: Muffled audio and bad distortion. Master has bad background noise at end. Ends abruptly; possibly cut off too soon.
