Speaking to a UN Symposium on Sex Stereotyping in Media, October 24, 1991, she tells how impossible it was to get facts on Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas out through mainstream media, and goes on to tell how advertisers manipulate media content.

Host(s): Frieda Werden
Featured Speakers/Guests: Robin Morgan, longtime feminist and former chief editor of Ms., wrote – among other things – Sisterhood is Global. She now hosts a weekly podcast called Women’s Media Center Live with Robin Morgan
