August 18 #333 Paper Tiger Reads 21st Century Working Woman
A feminist comedy show examining representations of working women in
mainstream media and the evolution of women’s place in the workforce
over the past 50 years. Structured as a local news program starring two
female anchors this show uses slapstick comedy, man-on-the-street
interviews, live music, kitschy camera techniques, big hair-dos, and
plenty of cribbed footage to examine a myriad of issues related to the
contemporary working woman. Topics covered include the economic crisis
of 2008, Non-Traditional Employment for Women, a New York based
non-profit that helps women enter the construction and building trades,
and one woman’s rise and fall in the workplace, all interwoven into a
critique of mainstream media representations of women working.
August 28 #332 Basta Ya!
Paper Tiger collaborated with youth in Brooklyn to create a video on how
gentrification and development affects residents. Rents and property
values skyrocketed over the past few years in Sunset Park, a mostly
Latino and Asian working class neighborhood in Brooklyn. People are
being displaced as condominiums are being built. This video was created
to inform residents about what is happening and to inspire the community
to take action. However gentrification is happening in communities
everywhere, and we want this video to also be seen in a global context.

compelling and truly alternative media since 1981! Through the
distribution of our short documentary programs, community screenings and
grassroots advocacy, PTTV works to expose and challenge the corporate
control of media and strives to increase awareness of how media can be
used to affect social change.
