LISTEN: 21 Minutes with Carol Ann Olson

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.

Did I say “show?” I meant, one of her shows. There are others–Community Conversations on Recovery and Inspire Indeed.

She’s also involved with the Pixel Project, the Alliance in Action, and she used to be a therapist for survivors of assault and violence.

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.
