Mary Olson, Director of the Southeast Office of the Nuclear Information and Resource Service, talks about the greater danger faced by women and girls exposed to ionizing nuclear radiation. This includes trans-generational DNA damage. An expert in highly radioactive spent fuel policy, she discusses the dangers of transporting nuclear waste from nuclear power reactors and nuclear weapons facilities.
Mary Olson’s research and activism is a driving force for the Treaty to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. This Nuclear Free Future conversation takes heed of this topic 73 years after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and August 9, 1945.
