Back in the day, over 100 years ago, the average worker had no rights whatsoever! In some cases, a 60-72 hour a week job was commonplace. There were no Child Labor Laws. A man of 40 years of age could be working next to a child of 10 years of age. Many children barely completed six years of school.

Tonight's special guest is Mary E Graziano from Hamilton, Ontario, a child abuse survivor and member of the NAASCA family. Mary is Assistant Director at Abuse Survivors and Victims United, where she's been pairing up her poetry with the work of artist Michal Madison. She describes herself as an independent advocate for child abuse. She's very active in sometimes "secret" groups on Facebook and a member of Protecting Canadian Children and a member and volunteered at Butterfly Dreams Abuse and Recovery. Ms Graziano is a writer / poet / blogger, writing poetry about child abuse and trying to transmit the message that child abuse is wrong, stressing that we as adults need to be the voices for those who can't speak, the abused and traumatized child-victims. Her BLOG (http://www.nippercats.blogspot.com) is about her own child abuse. She says, "I started writing back in 2008, but now as a survivor I write about children in general." Mary works in an elementary school, assisting in the classroom with a teacher, and is an Educational Assistant for children with special needs. Mary writes, "Helping them do their work, teaching them skills they will need later in life. I have been doing this job for 25 years." and this is showing up as a new job, sorry about that everyone.

Tonight's special guest host is Barbara Ochoa from San Francisco, a returning NAASCA family member who has been with us several times. That's because Barbara (aka Petra Luna) has a special mission, one which we share with her here at NAASCA. Each year for the past three years, Barbara has produced a series of events celebrating what's become known as Male Abuse Awareness Week (MAAW -- the first week of December). Each year, recognizing that young males have an especially tough time even talking about being abused as kids, Barbara reaches out to this frequently undeserved group with videos, music events, dance and special guest appearances (Help4Guys.org). She encourages victims of abuse to seek help, justice and recovery through her music and nonprofit organization, the P.Luna Foundation. Barbara will be joined tonight by her guests Patrick Donaldson and DeWayne Watts. Patrick is engaged in revealing Male Military Spouse abuse issues and manages the web site www.MachoSpouse.com. DeWayne is the author of several books including the novels "The Boy in The Wood" and "David's Mark" and writes a blog at www.DeWayneWatts.com, where one can keep up to date on all his current projects. Join us to discuss these and other issues pertaining to Male Abuse Awareness Week.

Dr. Hülya N. Yilmaz, a Liberal Arts college professor, holds a Ph.D. from The University of Michigan and has a thirty-seven-year long teaching experience in the fields of German, Comparative Literature and Turkish studies – with prominent concentration on advanced-level composition writing within the perimeters of English and German. After her doctoral promotion, she authored Das Ghasel des islamischen Orients in der deutschen Dichtung (The Ghazal of the Islamic Orient in German literature), a research book in German by Peter Lang International Academic Publishers (link below).

Her invited book chapter with her analysis and critique of the political novel by the 2006 recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature – the controversial Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk – was published by Palgrave Macmillan, one of the most prestigious publishers in the field, under the title, "The Imagined Exile: Orhan Pamuk in His Novel 'Snow'," in Global Perspectives on Orhan Pamuk.
