This is a February 1985 rebroadcast of a 1971 episode of Womankind, hosted by Nanette Rainone. Rainone interviews four members of the New York Radical Feminists (not introduced) about the Rape Speakout they are organizing for January 24, 1971 at St. Clements Episcopal Church in Manhattan. The speakout will consist of testimony by women on their particular rapes, and a summing up what women can do to prevent rape in the future. This action was inspired by the political group Redstockings' Abortion Speakout.
