This is the semester's first episode of Assignment: Radio, KGOU's student-produced public affairs program focusing on issues and events on the University of Oklahoma campus.

This week the Assignment Radio reporters talk to three Oklahoma women showing strength in unique ways.

First, Patrick Smith looks into the work of Parents Helping Parents, a local support group for people with children facing challenges. He talks to a woman who was helped by her involvement in the group.

Every other Thursday night, Parents Helping Parents meets in a room at the Norman Regional Hospital Education Center. The meetings consist of mostly adults gathered around a rectangular setup of tables in the middle of the room. People ranging from their mid 20s to their 60s are in attendance. Hugh Benson, a board member for the group, helps organize these twice-monthly meetings.
