Charlotte Bunch on the Women's Liberation Movement / Karla Tonella

Episode Title:
Charlotte Bunch on the Women's Liberation Movement / Karla Tonella
PRA Archive #: 

Karla Tonella interviews feminist theorist and writer Charlotte Bunch, editor of Quest Magazine, a feminist quarterly. Bunch reviews the history of the Women's Liberation movement beginning around 1968 (the birthing year); 1969-1970 (the growing years); 1970s (feminist organization). The chronology of the women's movement presented by Bunch moves from "we exist, we are oppressed" to "why we are oppressed?" to "what are we going to do about it?" Bunch reviews the present state of the Women's Liberation movement and how it must stay in touch with the needs of society at large or else it will die out like other political movements have. Self-contained.
