‘Songs, sketches and living newspaper demonstrate that much of the progress women have made in recent years has been on paper only. Child-care, equal pay, education and opportunity, abortion and contraception, and rape, are some of the subjects dealt with in this lively, topical show. It’s aimed at women who go out to work, but since the struggle for equality doesn’t stop there, it looks at the home front too. This 50 minute show has been performed for trade union schools and socials, NAC and nursery campaigns, women’s refuges, in comprehensive schools and colleges.’ (Broadside, 1978 show listings and description)
