PBS’ To the Contrary with Bonnie Erbé is the only woman-owned news analysis program on national television. The program covers all issues affecting women, families and communities of
color and airs on 240 PBS stations across the country.
It was launched in 1992 as a platform to empower women, to add diversity to the usual weekend news/talk lineup (Tim Russert, Sam Donaldson, John McLaughlin, George Will, etc.) and to give voice to women of all political perspectives and races.
We’d like to distribute, free of charge, DVD’s to women’s studies and political science departments on a variety of current affairs issues which professors might use to trigger lectures or discussions in class.
The project is in the planning stages now, and we’d like your ideas on the following:
- What topics would be most useful (women in politics, women in American or world history, the state of gender and state relations, etc.)?
- Who should be on the panel discussings these issues (professors, authors, etc.)?
- What is the best way to distribute these DVDs (post them online, e-blast offers to snail mail them to departments, etc.)?
Any and all thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
