On November 27, 1972, a group of activist entertainers, some of the most talented and well-known people in American society, released an album dedicated to deconstructing normative gender roles in society. Over the past 50 years, hundreds of copies were sold, and a book based on the album was published in '74. The made-for-TV remarkable Free to Be You and Me won an Emmy and Peabody, and its ratings smashed records. And it also began to bring the deconstruction of the rigid gender roles inherited from previous generations to the mainstream.
