Ten years ago it would have been unthinkable to find a women journalist as Head of the Foreign News Department, or as Head of Programmes, at ORF, Austrian Television. Now this has happened. In fact more than 2500 women have chosen careers at ORF. Some of the women who’ve benefited from these changes talk about their climb up the career ladder and discuss the prejudice that other women still face. The 32 part series, ‘From Rhetoric to Reality’, is available on five tapes. Tape 2 includes ‘The Feminine Side of Television’ and can be bought separately.
