They finally perform their number 1 single

9/10

"My Son, the Feminist" finds the family wondering who booked them to perform at a feminist rally for POW (Power Of Women). Laurie is naturally Danny's first choice, but it's actually Keith, who simply said he'd ask his family; it seems his uber liberal girlfriend Tina (Jane Actman) hastily passed out the posters because 'there wasn't time.' Dining with the Partridges, they listen to Tina rail against the 'decadent' traditional roles that women perform in society, that of wife and mother, discouraging them from having careers, earning a stern rebuttal from five-time mother Shirley: "don't you think you ought to have a husband and family before you make that statement?" The s--t really hits the fan when Tina decides that The Partridge Family must perform songs provided by POW rather than songs about love ("that's just something men say to appease women"). Keith refuses to bow to censorship, allowing David Cassidy the opportunity to flex his dramatic muscles. And at last, they get to perform Tony Romeo's "I Think I Love You," their current number 1 debut hit single, heard only briefly in one earlier episode, "But the Memory Lingers On" (included on the debut LP THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY ALBUM). The 'Morality Watchdogs' are played by familiar faces Leonard Stone, Dort Clark, Fran Ryan, and Sari Price, one of Shirley Jones' lifelong friends from the OKLAHOMA days, returning for three more episodes.
