Terminals

Women need to work in technology on our own terms instead of being railroaded into Manpower camps.

'Terminals' is a stream-of-consciousness collage, which asks us to look at and question the dangers of technological advances and nuclear power. 'The 'work faster' ethic is written on the door to the terminals. Hazards to fertility or risks of cancer are not criteria in setting 'acceptable' levels of exposure to radiation at work. At the Visual Display Terminal, women are staring directly at a source of radiation. Bomb tests and waste disposal are the white man's cancer imposed on the people of the Pacific.'
