(Studio) Sark Island in England is full of male chauvinist pigs.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(Sark Island) Women libbers have come to Sark slowly. Here the husbands own and control wives completely. [Elizabeth LEFEUVRE says conditions are disgraceful. Wife's earnings aren't even her own.] [REPORTER - asks about legal right of husband to beat wife.] [LEFEUVRE - says many wives would beat back if husbands tried such a trick.] Minimonarchy run by woman hereditary ruler. [Dame Sybil HATHAWAY - says outsiders want change, but true Sark women satisfied.] Sark's polite women libbers hope to nudge Sark into 17th century within 10 or 20 years
