The copy-text (=A) is a transcribed version from the original cassette audio recording of Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes to the USNA midshipmen on May 12, 1972. The original recording was located at the archives of the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland with the help of archivist, Adam Minakowski. The original cassette recording was digitized to an mp3 audio format. Alyson Farzad-Phillips and Skye de Saint Felix created a written transcript from the audio file. This audio file was also used in 2002, as part of a journal article written by Michael Gelfand in the International Journal of Naval History. In this article, short quotes from the live recording are included, but no full transcript or copy text. To our knowledge, there is no complete transcript available in any other published literature.
The text does not depart from the copy-text or general editorial principles. The text of this edition has been thoroughly checked and proofread. Paragraph numbers have been added in brackets.
