Affirmative Action – Then And Now - Did We Fail?
The phrase, “You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby,” was once an advertising slogan for CIGARETTES! The year was 1968, the Ad featuring a tall, slender woman in a pantsuit became sort of an unofficial slogan for the National Organization for Women and feminists all over the U.S.
At the same time, in the late 1960s, the Federal Communication Commission established rules to encourage radio and television stations to hire more women and minorities. That’s one of the reasons I got my first radio job. So I have real-life experience with Affirmative Action.
In, 2021 most of us agree that cigarettes cause cancer, and, in fact, we still haven’t elected a woman for president. And many young women do NOT support Affirmative Action.
