Members of Women's Liberation, determined to impress the University of California, Berkeley officials of their seriousness, staged a demonstration at Harmon Gymnasium, the school's men's gym, demanding to be allowed to enter the class in Karate. The protestors were met by the police who refused to allow them into the room where the course was being taught. They later talked to the officials in the administration building, Vice Chancellors R.L. Johnson and John Henry Raleigh. Denny Smithson of KPFA's Public Affairs Department was there with KPFA's portable tape recorder. Recorded January 8, 1970.
