A YWCA Outstanding Woman, a radio host, an advocate against domestic and sexual violence, and a dang good conversationalist.
Carol Ann Olson figured out that she could use the airwaves to help prevent sexual and domestic violence–really violence in all forms. What a genius figure-out!
Her show, “The V-Word” on WRIR 97.3 is about five minutes of conversation with either a survivor, a dad, a mom, a community member, and advocate, or someone else who’s been affected by violence in some way. You can stream it on WRIR’s website or listen to it at 97.3 FM every weekday at 10:00 AM or keep up with it at the V Word Blog.
In these 21 minutes, recorded at WRIR, Carol talks about how pervasive a problem domestic and sexual violence is, what she’s trying to do about preventing it, and how we should both identify and help survivors.
