She also discussed the politics of the Iowa City community, its need for social action, a bond issue for the county home, civil rights, open marriage, and the issue of women cooking for the Men's Club. The talk touched on significant social issues form the 1950s into the 1980s. A videocassette of the talk accompanies the script.
