From A Woman's Point of View | Listen to this entire show:

Dr Marsha Coleman Adebayo got her PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and became part of the staff at the EPA working on environmental and minority rights. She was chosen to be a part of the Liaison team from the United States to help South Africa transition to democracy.particularly regarding environmental and civil rights matters. While in South Africa she became aware of the severe health effects of Vanadium mining to the South Africans and reported to the EPA her findings-from there her troubles began and a fascinating story evolves of the pressures put on an employee who reports problems and the the expectations of the loyalties-Thus she became a whistle blower-eventually sued and won her case with the EPA. She was involved with the passage of the No Fear Act to protect federal employees who report problems in their field and get "pushed" into whistle-blower status.Dr. Adebayo in this capacity is credited with being instrumental in the passage of the first civil rights act of the 21 st century. She has written a book about her experiences-NO FEAR ;THE TALE OF A WHISTLE BLOWER and has founded the No Fear Institute. Marsha Coleman Adebayo
