Title:Open forum on the woman question [page 1]
Date:1969
Description:

Alternative Title: The carrier of the Now culture. Announces: Women's day April 9, 1969 and an open forum on the woman question April 10, 1969. Quote: "Any airline can take you somewhere. But only Air-India is somewhere before you take it... [Air India] teaches Americans to accept sari-clad hostesses and 'other Eastern delights' alongside India's $57 per capita yearly income and 2.5 million deaths from leprosy last year... The Now culture is an invisible protective shield... The invisible protective shield is everywhere and nowhere. It exists in the head of every person who acts as if it were there... In the radical movement, we have shields that make us define our movement as real and the rest of America as plastic. That is not a useful position from which to organize people into our movement." Note on date: April 8, 1969 is written in pen on the document, other dates are listed as Wednesday and Thursday.
