In this recording, Sidney Roger interviews the wife of labor leader Harry Bridges, Nikki Bridges, Bay Area chairwoman of the Jeannette Rankin Brigade, a coalition of women and organizations formed to go to Washington on January 15, 1968 to present their petition to redress grievances against Congress for the continuation of the Vietnam war. Roger makes much mention of "woman power" and Bridges provides specifics of how to join the organization and particulars of the upcoming protest.
