It's your call

February 28, 1992

The American Psychological Association says that TV programming re-enforces racial and gender stereotypes and places more value on women's looks than on competency. Callers to SUNDIAL agree. Of 260 callers, 158 (61 percent) said they believe television does indeed perpetuate stereotypes, and 177 (68 percent) agreed that women's roles are based more on looks than on talent.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
