Trial by sex / Flo Kennedy and Ti-Grace Atkinson.
PRA Archive #: 

Florynce "Flo" Kennedy (1916-2000), attorney, and Ti-Grace Atkinson of the National Organization for Women (NOW) are interviewed by Kay Lindsey about how the judical system discriminates against women. Kennedy and Atkinson how women are routinely penalized for things that men generally get away with, how this has been the case throughout history, and how race plays a part in this double standard as well. Special consideration is given to the cases of Alice Crimmins, housewife from the Bronx who was charged with killing her two children in 1965; Linda Leclair, Barnard College student who moved off-campus to live with her boyfriend and was accused of breaking the college's rules; and Valerie Solanas, radical feminist who shot Andy Warhol.
