Women's Rights Day (26th August 1972)

About This Item

KPIX Eyewitness news report from 26th of August 1972 by Ed Arnow at a Women's Rights Day in celebration of the anniversary of women getting the right to vote just 52 years before. Panels and workshops from the event include: The Northern Californian Tribunal; women in prison; childcare; working women; equal rights amendment and women's sexuality. When Arnow asks an organizer of the event if she would characterize any of those attending as being anti-male, she replies: "Well the Women's Movement is basically establishing the right of women to control their own lives and if that comes into a conflict with men at times that may be a problem yes. Otherwise women are for women, and not in a negative sense against men." The TV Archive would like to thank guest-intern Siân Williams who repaired, remastered, catalogued and edited this newsfilm for the web.
