Debate between feminist and anti-feminists. Anti-feminists see feminists challenging woman's natural role, while feminists see anti-feminists as a right-wing backlash that tries to organize women to support the party of war. The right-wing "pro-family agenda" is dedicated to fighting the Equal Rights Amendment and enforcing rigid sexual ethics. Voices heard in the recording, which come from a variety of sources, are historian and author Barbara Ehrenreich, Mother Jones editor and feminist activist Deirdre English, feminist activist Catherine MacKinnon, author and feminist activist Lee Novick, feminist activist Charlotte Bunch, satirical performance art troupe Ladies Against Women, anti-feminist activist Phyllis Schlafly, anti-abortion activist Nellie Gray, U.S. Senator Richard Schweiker (R-PA), U.S. Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC), and Evangelical theologian Francis Schaffer. Produced by Peggy Irene Bray and Julia Randall of the KPFA Women's Department with engineering assistance by Susan Elizabeth.
