[instrumental intro plays]

[Aldred] From Hollywood,

it's The Dinah Show!

[cheers and applause]

And now, a lady with her own ideas

about what a woman is,

here's Dinah!

[cheers and applause]

[instrumental intro plays]

Now there's a list of what one husband

would want from his wife,

or any husband should want from his wife,

when he came home from work.

For instance, one,

have the house presentable.

Be attired in a negligee.

[laughter]

Provide 20 minutes of silence before being

presented with the problems of the day.

Four, be attired in a negligee .

[laughter]

Five, have a meal prepared

within an hour.

And six, be attired in a negligee.

[laughter]

Gloria Allred, are you...

-Hi, Gloria.

-Hi, Dinah.

-Where you from?

-I'm an attorney in Los Angeles.

Ah, welcome.

How would you feel if your husband

presented you with a list like that?

Well, Dinah, I think we have a uterus

and a brain, and they both work,

and I think it's very insulting to women.

[cheers and applause]

Listen.

Well...

Listen, I think you ought to be definite

about this.

Don't just tiptoe around it!

[laughter]

[blinds open]

[Allred] I live in a war zone everyday.

There is a war on women.

It's real.

It can be very ugly.

Women depend on me to be strong,

to be fearless,

and to assert and protect their rights.

[engine turns over]

And power only understands power.

["Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves"

plays]

One woman strikes fear

into the hearts of powerful men,

from Herman Cain to Tiger Woods.

Now there was a time

[man 2] A feminist crusader...

[woman] Media hound...

[man 3] And a lightning rod

for controversy.

She is easily the most famous

women's rights attorney in the country.

Great woman

[woman] Her zeal has put her at the center

of countless cases.

[Allred] She did not ask Mr. Trump

to view his anatomy

to prove that he is a naturally born man.

[Trump] I think Gloria would be

very, very, very impressed with me.

[laughs]

Sisters are doin' it for themselves

[woman] Joining us now

from Los Angeles this morning...

Joining us to tell us what's going on...

[man] Joining us now from Los Angeles

is civil rights attorney...

Please welcome to our show,

Gloria Allred.

Sisters are doin' it for themselves

I first met Gloria

on the television screen.

-Stop trying to perpetuate myths...

-Nobody...

...about battered women.

I thought of her

as humorless and striving...

I want to talk about all this

with civil rights attorney Gloria Allred.

I was a little bit afraid of her.

She's Gloria Allred.

I want you to finish.

-I want to play the juror.

-Don't talk over me.

Who else do you know

like Gloria Allred?

It is a disgrace that these homophobes

are allowed to discriminate!

I am taking this case on personally!

[indistinct chatter]

We all have our own

disadvantages and advantages.

I mean, for instance, I hate conflict.

I think that Gloria enjoys conflict.

You should be using these resources

to arrest these fathers!

The reason you demean us

is because secretly

you envy women and you fear them!

[shocked laughter]

Gloria's gone on TV and she's raised hell.

She's been very aggressive,

and it's no surprise

that some people don't like that.

Oh, save it for your next book,

you little snitch.

That's assault! That is assault!

I don't think Gloria's

in a popularity contest

because if she is,

well, she lost that one.

Every time some high profile case

breaks out,

you jump on television

and act like you God.

Sisters are doin' it for themselves

[Barkley] Why don't you just go back

to your office, wait on another case,
