Storyline

Today's World is working on getting the serialization rights to feminist Harriet Henderson's latest book. Being a man, Ron gets nowhere with Harriet. Having no female executives on staff, Nicholson asks Doris if she will act on the magazine's behalf in dealing with Harriet, Doris to pretend to be a feminist in Harriet's mold despite Doris not believing in most of what Harriet espouses, which includes women being devoid of any femininity. Doris reluctantly agrees. Harriet may not be impressed if she knew the real Doris, one that is currently being romantically wooed by David Cowley, a macho race car driver. Doris may have to decide if the contract with Harriet or her first date with David is more important. Written by Huggo

Typical 1970's Feminist story
12 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

This was an episode where Doris Martin was your average woman of the time. Not a feminist but one who wanted equal rights.

After a man from the magazine is rebuffed from the Feminist, they call Doris to meet with her. Upon arriving you see the typical feminist jokes, women smoking cigars, and acting like men. Once other women come in the Feminist calls them "girls" not women.

At the end of the show, Doris has met a new suitor and has dressed to the nines meets the Feminist at the same restaurant and sees how hypocritical the Feminist is when a man has sweet-talked her into giving him rights to new book.
