On Ms. magazine and womens' conditions in the Soviet Union. Mandel begins the program by introducing controversy over the book Women In Soviet Society by Professor Gail Lapidus of University of California Berkeley and the articles by dissenter women who had been expelled by the Soviet Union, which appeared in the November issue of Ms. magazine. Mandel invited his wife Tanya to join him on the show to give her comments on the book, the articles, and her own impressions of the status of women in the Soviet Union from her visits there. They discuss the two pieces of literature for about 24 minutes, then open the phone lines to take calls from their listeners. End is cut off.
Program was originally cataloged with the title Women dissidents and Ms. magazine / Tammy Brantford interviewed by Peggy Stein and William Mandel. This particular audio recording, however, does not feature Tammy Brantford or Peggy Stein, so their names have been removed from the title and keywords.
