The Satellite Sisters

The Satellite Sisters is a radio show, a book, a website, and an email newsletter - all created by five real-life sisters: Julie, Liz, Sheila, Monica, and Lian Dolan. The Dolans created Satellite Sisters in 1996 to explore the range of topics friends seek each other's opinions on, such as health, happiness, and how to fix a bad dye job. They've earned the loyalty of listeners and readers by treating all their topics and guests with a mix of respect and humor. The Satellite Sisters' motto: Not every conversation will change your life, but any conversation can.

Reed College Women's Committee Forum 2005

The proceeds of Forum 2005 support the Reed College Women's Committee Scholarship Fund, established to enhance Reed's diversity and to benefit women with financial need who face access challenges to education, such as returning to college after a long absence, child rearing, or physical challenges, or who meet similar criteria.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2006, the Reed College Women's Committee was founded in 1956 as an educational and social liaison between the college and the community. The mission of the committee includes enlarging and enhancing the reputation of Reed College in the community; raising funds for additional educational opportunities at Reed College; providing the public with stimulating and intellectual activities; and developing a continuing and ever-increasing circle of friends for Reed College.
