Night with the Experts: Mary Olson

Date(s) - 07/28/2022
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm


NEIS (Nuclear Energy Information Service) presents long-time radiation activist and researcher Mary Olson.

Formerly with NIRS (Nuclear Information and Resource Service), Mary has created her own new program, titled GRIP (Gender + Radiation Impact Project). She will join us having recently presented materials in Europe at the June 20, 2022, Vienna Conference on the Humanitarian Impacts of Nuclear Weapons.  Please invite others to attend, and come with the questions you want answered!

NEIS says in their invitation,

Mary Olson has long focused on the value and harm of radiation in human health. In 2011 the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster caused her to zero in on the question of whether radiation has a gender (biological sex) factor in its human toll. Her talk will be a reprise of a 10-minute contribution on June 20, 2022 to the Vienna Conference on the Humanitarian Impacts of Nuclear Weapons, entitled Atomic Radiation is More Harmful to Girls and Women than to Boys and Men elaborated to share the strategic pathway of the new Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons dating back to 2010—adding some “insider” experience of processes at the UN, as well as adding a bit on the U.S. regulatory frame.
