On October 4, 1980, WBAI held a special day of programming, examining political trends and what was starting to be called "The New Right." In this program, Mimi Rosenberg speaks with Rhonda Copelon and Atina Grossmann about the role of women, the family, and religion in contemporary American society. Grossmann writes about the sex reform movement and campaigns for birth control and abortion reform in Weimar-era Germany. Copelon is a lawyer at the Center for Constitutional Rights and works in the area of reproductive freedom, particularly abortion rights.
