MC-Commentator-Interviewer in The Female Man

By Joanna Russ


Janet is interviewed by multiple people in Joanna's and Jeannine's worlds. Some of them are television and radio interviewers; others are National Security. The television MC whom we meet in Part 1, Section 7 is the chap who can't imagine why Whileawayan women aren't more excited to have rediscovered men. The Commentator who interviews Janet in Jeannine's world is described simply as "a lady commentator" (1.7.44), and the Interviewer who appears in Part 2, Section 7 is probably from the Pentagon.
