Canada’s CBC Radio, The Current with Anna Maria Tremonti

Anna Maria Tremonti interviewed my co-editor Laura Lovett and me about the history and legacy of “Free to Be…You and Me.” Here’s how they introduced it on their website:

“The animated infants who opened a prime time television special in the U.S. 40 years ago were borne of one women’s desperation to find something other than the usual princess stuff to read to her young niece. Free to Be You and Me began as the first record in children’s entertainment to contain no sex or race stereotypes. It had children across North America singing the praises of the women’s movement, diversity and respect. Forty Years on… Free To Be is considered a turning point and we are tracking it’s influence today with a new book about the movement.”
