Ladies Before Gentlemen

1 9 5 1 (USA)
10 x 30 minute episodes

Six male panellists (five regulars and one guest) and one female celebrity guest discussed various topical issues. The show followed the format of a game – but without prizes – where the woman had to successfully defend the female point of view to maintain her position on a pedestal.

If she should fail, she lost her position and the argument was scored in favour of men; should she successfully defend it, the argument was scored in favour of women.

No recordings of this ABC series are known to survive.
