Shere Hite participates with a panel of women on women's relationships to sex and work. Hite introduces herself as the author of "The Hite report," a study of 3,000 women and discusses the findings of her research on women and sex. Other women on her panel are: Kay Whitlock from N.O.W. the National Sexuality Task Force on Lesbianism and Sexuality; Mary Calderone, president of SIECUS, Sex Information and Education Council of the United States; Leah Schaefer, on the board of the Society for the Scientific Study of Sex, and author of Women and Sex; Janet Wolfe, associate director of the Institute For Rational Living. Each panelist speaks for approximately ten minutes each and then the panel takes questions from the audience. Note on box: "Program is a good extension of her book, expounding on topics such as recent findings on the sex stereotyping of women and inhibitions to sexual pleasure." This was either recorded or played as part of the KPFT Community Women's Group on April 6, 1977 (Previous note said this was recorded in New York in March 1977). Program produced by Laura Rossen and Betty Maldonaldo. Sexual material.
