As nuclear plant accidents mount, and nuclear waste becomes a greater threat to health and safety worldwide, Women Rising Radio features veteran activists at the center of the movement to phase out nuclear energy, power and research. We revisit Chernobyl, Fukushima, Three Mile Island and many less well known disasters – and hear about real solutions to the problem of nuclear energy.
