From our TTEOW blogpost: March 2015

Through the Eyes of Women has been on the KHSU airwaves for 30 years.  During the month of March we presented 3 shows-blasts from our past; one each from 1985, 1995 and 2009, along with our anniversary, documentary style show about the history of the show, the women who started it all and those who have kept it going over the years.

Ruth Mountaingrove, Ina Harris and Belle Shalom are the founding mothers of Through the Eyes of Women.  In 1985 they found a new medium for exploring their interests in women’s issues; radio.  Talking with them now, they all credit the other for getting things started; and those of us who have followed in their footsteps are very glad they, collectively, did take the leap. They gave birth to a legacy of women’s empowerment on the KHSU airwaves.  Ruth, Ina and Belle are still active in their communities.  Ruth has just published a new poetry chapbook and is being honored for her activism and creativity by the Humboldt County League of Women voters during their annual State of the Community Luncheon on April 17th, 2015



Ina has spent many years involved in the labor movement.  After leaving TTEOW she produced her own radio show on KHSU, Labor USA, for 3 1/2 years.  Ina was honored for her activism by the Humboldt County League of women Voters in the year 2000
