Brenda Brush, a member of the National Organization of Women and of Women's Liberation, speaks on "Socialization: the pink blanket routine" at a teach-in on the oppressions of women at San Francisco State College on December 10, 1969. Brush opens by exposing the brainwashing both women and men go through, from the moment of birth, and goes on to describe how it affects our attitudes, values, and aspirations, and how women in our society are made to apologize for the social roles they have been forced into. This is the first in a series of seven talks taken from the teach-in.
