About our Guest:  Marion Aird  [it is on the audio file, to be added as text]

About our Guest:  Carol Singer is a lifelong activist in civil rights and environmental work. After moving to Sonoma County in the early 80s, she cofounded Born of Woman, a circle formed to explore and heal the root causes of violence against women and girls, stood with Women in Black (who stand together worldwide in silent witness against violence), and in the 1990s, helped form the Nineteenth Amendment Anniversary Project. This coalition was formed to honor the 75th anniversary of the 19th Amendment (when women won the right to vote). It included women’s groups all over the North Bay.
NAAP created women’s history units for public schools (K–12th grades), sometimes portraying Alice Paul, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Mary Ellen Pleasant, and others.
During that time, Carol became active in NOW.
