I am so proud and happy to announce that I will be hosting Wise Woman Storytime: The Radio Show for the first time on Thursday, September 18, 2014 from 12-1pm on KOWS 107.3 FM. The show was created as an antidote to a common theme I keep hearing as I talk to older women: Many aging women feel invisible and unheard. Ours is not only a youth oriented culture that does not honor, respect and revere elders, we are a society that is losing the history and stories from those who came before us. We are a culture that undermines and diminishes the value of our elders and we fail to tap into, to encourage, listen and to promote our elders legacies, insights, and gifts. This is especially true for women.
On the third, fourth and fifth Thursdays of each month a cadre of local women will be spotlighted and given a public voice to share a personal story from their lives. Each guest will be given uninterrupted time to tell her story. Afterwards, I will facilitate a discussion and the listening audience is invited and encouraged to call in and participate.
The show can be streamed live at http://kows107-3.org/.
Please tune in and support our sisters. If you are a 55+ woman with a story to tell or you know someone who might be interested, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, we can change the world one story at a time.
