The first and second sides of the first cassette tape (#179) both contain a recording of a media reform organization meeting. The mission of this organization was to promote the increase in feminist viewpoints in the media. Although this is not a recording of a NOW meeting, NOW members did participate in this organization. During this meeting, members discussed writing petitions to congressmen about the Communications Act Rewrite, organizing districts together to promote their ideas, FCC regulations, organizing a "media education day” workshop, updates from each district, and a lack of foreign language stations. Sue Punjack Carberry represented the San Diego district during the meeting. The first and second sides of the second cassette tape (#180) both contain a continuation of the media reform organization meeting from tape #179. During this portion of the meeting, members discussed the pieces of legislation that the group supported, updating the Communications Act Rewrite proposals on broadcasting, and the history of the Communications Act of 1934 and why the Rewrite is necessary.Additional Descriptive Notes: Parts I and II
