April 15, 1970 - Demonstration over Women's Image on Television
CBS Affiliate KPIX, San Francisco
A small group of feminists fighting for women's rights infiltrated the annual CBS shareholder meeting to challenge the corporation’s sexist programming and limited employment opportunities for women.  Nearby,  protestors from the Women's Movement demonstrated outside the local CBS affiliate. They picketed, chanted, and put on a guerrilla theater skit. Using banners, signs and costumes, the protesters acted out the sexist way the media portrayed women and the gender-biased approach to selling products.
