Women Themselves, which first aired in 1980, was a series of 26 half hour radio programs produced and broadcast by WEPR in South Carolina. These programs focused on the lives and accomplishments of some of the prominent women of history. The impetus for this project stemmed from the realization by many historians in the late 1970s that many of the achievements of prominent women had been underexposed in the classroom in regards to textbooks and other media. The project was spearheaded by Alan Schaffer, head of Clemson's History Department, with help from Lily-Roland Hall, station manager of South Carolina educational radio station WEPR, and Laura Becker and Charlotte Holt, who were responsible for the production, writing, and research for the programs. This series highlighted the accomplishments of women despite the disadvantages and restrictions that they were subject to in a male-oriented society. The content focused on the words of the women themselves, as found in autobiographies and diaries, accompanied by dramatic readings from voice actors. The voice acted material was then interspersed with commentary and analysis through interviews with eminent historians.
