About this collection

Long time feminist activists and National Organization for Women (NOW) members, Joanne McQueen and Kathy McMahon-Klosterman, each had radio programs on the local NPR station, WMUB (Southwest Ohio). 

 

Jo McQueen interviewed local women about their leadership, work or interests on her 53.4% Majority Report. This was the percentage of women in the U.S.A. population at the time.

 

Kathy McMahon-Klosterman produced and hosted the first live call-in show on WMUB, titled Women About Women. She used the NOW Consciousness Raising  (CR) guidelines for topics. Kathy had conducted CR groups for years in Oxford and believed that women who were afraid of the label ‘feminist’ and males who thought CR groups were about male bashing, would be better informed and educated by ‘eavesdropping’ on CR discussions. Kathy also had a monthly short show titled, Between the Wires. This was news of importance to women that was not covered on the UPI or AP wires.

 

The physical collection will be held at The Smith Library of Regional History, 441 S. Locust Street, Oxford, OH 45056 (513) 523-3035 | fax (513) 523-6661 | sml@lanepl.org
