Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Ellen Snortland, of Altadena, CA. An attorney, author, actor, activist & baker, Ms Snortland also teaches self defense to women & girls and women with personal appearances and in her book "Beauty Bites Beast" - Awakening the Warrior Within Women & Girls (soon to be a documentary film). As a writer/ producer/ director/ humorist/ actor, dormant lawyer, women's and children's self-defense advocate, feminist-homemaker, Snortland has the unique ability to speak and write with authority on subjects ranging from knitting and cooking, to S.W.A.T. team methods of close-quarter hand-to-hand combat to the opportunities and obstacles of the professional American woman. Ms. Snortland has specialized in so-called women's issues, including the movement to achieve gender balance in institutions, women in history, reducing violence against women, as well as childhood and adult sexual harassment problems being exposed in society. "With blonde hair and a name like Snortland, you've got to figure I'm going to know something about harassment," says Snortland, who accomplishes as much as she can with her causes using humor. Ms. Snortland particularly advocates nipping sexual harassment in the bud where it actually starts, in the home and on the playground, by empowering girls and women to speak up. As a self-defense advocate, Ellen writes and teaches both women and kids physical self-protection skills.
