PRA Archive #: 

Series record for KPFA's Consciousness-Raising series, 4 episodes (BC1087.01-.04). Produced by Jan Legnitto and broadcast on KPFA approximately every other Wednesday at 12:30PM between June 21 and October 18, 1972. The series was introduced in the June 1972 KPFA folio: "We're starting and important new series with on-the-air Consciousness-Raising...CR groups are central to the Women's Movement, but many women are unable to join because of isolation of one sort or another. We hope to partially overcome this by broadcasting a CR group, and then establishing a dialogue through listener call-ins. This way women at home can share in the experience, and, hopefully, the benefits." This issue of the KPFA folio gives further background on CR groups and why they work:

The four episodes presented in this series are on the following topics: ep.1 How we feel about our bodies, part I (53 min.) and part 2 (35 min.) -- ep.2 On getting angry (64 min.) -- ep.3 Role playing (59 min.) -- ep.4 The Single woman (47 min.).
