Oprah Winfrey Press Conference on NOW

Tune in – the Oprah Winfrey Press Conference is on right now – providing information about the suspected child abuse at her school for girls in South Africa. I’m watching on CBS. I think this issue is an important one for discussion for several reasons relating to how former abuse survivors (as Oprah is a self-identified survivor) deal with similar issues as adults; cross-cultural issues related to sexual assault and physical abuse, and the reporting of these incidents; and to what extent philanthropists take responsibility for their causes. From the little I know, I have been very impressed with Oprah and her team and their response to this incident – learn more by tuning in or reading follow-ups online.
