Women protest segregated help wanted ads

About This Item

KPIX Eyewitness News report from February 6th 1971 by Ben Williams in San Francisco, featuring women protesting outside the Fairmont Hotel against newspapers who publish help wanted ads with gender segregated columns. Includes interviews with a spokesman for the publishers who points out that many of their clients request that adverts be printed in separate columns for men and women and a protestor who claims this practice is in violation of the Fair Employment Practices Act. When Williams asks the man what his "general feeling" is about the National Organization of Women's Complaints he giggles and replies: "I don't know what all the complaints are."
