The women's studies department at Cal State Long Beach is under siege by a group of "concerned citizens," from the Christian Right who monitored a few classes and attacked the department for its openly pro-feminist and pro-lesbian syllabus. Eloise Klein Healy and Helene Rosenbluth talk with Sondra Hale, Sherna Gluck, and Betty Brooks of the women's studies department at CSULB about the Christian Right's attack on the curriculum. Program opens with a reading of an article written by Charlene Spretnak, "The Christian right's holy war, manipulating women's fears" from the book "The politics of women's spirituality." Music by Deadly Nightshade, BeBe K'Roche, and Alix Dobkin interspersed throughout the article and opens and closes the program. Produced by Helene Rosenbluth 5/26/82.
