Terry O'Neill on Fighting Bob Radio tomorrow
By David Giffey
This week on Fighting Bob Radio we’ll hear the president of the National Organization for Women describe what and who is behind the War on Women, and how we can fight back.
Terry O’Neill, president of NOW since 2009, will be the guest on Fighting Bob Radio from 11 a.m. to noon (CST) Thursday, August 2.
The online radioblog is broadcast live from Wisconsin on blogradio.com/fightingbob.com. Listeners can join the conversation by calling 213-943-3485. The show is hosted by Ed Garvey, founder and editor of fightingbob.com, and Eric Schubring of WOJB-FM radio in Hayward.
O’Neill is a feminist attorney, professor, and social justice activist who oversees NOW’s agenda including: advancing reproductive freedom, promoting diversity and ending racism, stopping violence against women, winning lesbian rights, ensuring economic justice, ending sex discrimination, and achieving constitutional equality for women. O’Neill is a former law professor at Tulane University, New Orleans, and the University of California at Davis. She is a political organizer and respected advocate of social justice issues.
In the early 1990s while at Tulane, O’Neill worked in the movement against former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke in his campaign for governor of Louisiana.
O’Neill’s radio interview this week is a warm-up for her upcoming visit as a guest speaker at Fighting Bob Fest on September 15, at the Alliant Center, Madison, where she’ll be joined by speakers including Bill McKibben, Phil Donahue, U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin, Jim Hightower, Norman Solomon, Dr. Jill Stein, Buddy Roemer, and others.
Plan to tune in to Fighting Bob Radio at 11 a.m. Thursday. And save September 15 for a great time at Fighting Bob Fest.
