The Ruth Benedict Collective is a group of 25 women in the New York area including anthropologists, students of anthropology and non-academic colleagues. Here they discuss their work as affected by feminism, particularly in the areas of matriarchy, myths and sexual behavior in sub-human primates. They also discuss how their field might have been different had they been acquainted with the women's movement. None of the speakers' full names are given in the recording. Followed by a Q&A period with the audience. Produced by Nanette Rainone. Program is on three reels; the third reel of this program is missing.
