Some "I was a child of the 70s" nostlagia  

I remember this album was a huge hit with us wee folk. They even made us sing it in music class. Whatever happened to these ideals? Did we win? Did we break stereotypes and teach critical thinking?

I remember the album, and that there *was* film, but I don't actually remember the film.

The cynic in me is inclined to say no, at least on a *wholesale* basis we didn't break stereotypes. I think political events of the 1970s broke us. Even if some kids were too young to understand it at the time.

My sister has exposed my neice to this classic... it's now one of her favorite movies...

I fond memories of watching it in elementary school... I think that some of the stereotypes have broken... more women in executive positions, more women as scientists and engineers... but there is still work to do...

Myabe it's where I live ( Columbia ) but I hear discrimination so rarely that it shocks me when I do.. but I doubt it is that way in the whole US.

read your own story/video on home shopping and quintanas, and you will have your answer, grasshopper.
