Donna Allen
The Media Technology Road to Democracy and Equality
In a little over two decades we have changed thousands of years of accepted male myths about women. This booklet describes three major myths and how changes were made by women creating their own media -- and the way to more such progress in the future. For this and the many other prescient booklets and position papers produced by the late Dr. Donna Allen, contact Martha Leslie Allen: allen@wifp.org or visit the Women’s Institute for Freedom of the Press website: www.wifp.org
