Report of the Task Force on women in public broadcasting by Caroline Isber( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Task Force on Women, established by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (cpb), had three objectives: (1) to examine the extent to which women were employed at all levels in public broadcasting and were integrated into its policy-making and operations; (2) to examine the visibility and image of women in all programing and the coverage of issues pertinent to women; and (3) to make recommendations to the cpb Board of Directors. These objectives were carried out by public television program monitoring, collection of employment statistics, surveying public television stations, and interviewing on the attitudes concerning employment and on the air appearances of women. The findings from the studies indicated that women, though involved in public broadcasting, have failed to achieve the occupational success of men in the industry. Particularly accountable for the discrepancy between men and women seemed to be the pattern of job segregation. Women, regardless of education and length of service in the industry, were disproportionately employed in the low status secretarial and clerical positions and men in engineering, mid-level, and high-level managerial jobs. Also, men were seen and heard on the air with greater frequency than women. Recommendations for implementation of policy to bring women into the mainstream are included. (Hb)
