Ann Herschfang (aka Ann Forfreedom), feminist activist, discusses ways in which women can succeed in today's society, independent of male orientation at the University of Southern California in April 1970. She talks about the ways to "make it" individually that women have found, the responses of both men and women to women who have made it, and the responses from the women who have made it to the women who haven't. Then Herschfang discusses why women want to make it, why women don't make it, and whether it's desirable to make it at all in this society. Popular music is interspersed throughout the recording.
