Margaret "Marty" Mann is the First Lady Of Alcoholics Anonymous. Listen to this incredible woman - who crusaded to teach all of America, men and women, that alcoholism is a treatable disease. Her life, which spanned most of the 20th century, encompasses despair, hope, and redemption through crusading to battle the pernicious evils of alcoholism, and - perhaps just as bad - ignorance about the nature of alcoholism.
In Marty's own words, "People who dislike the terms 'alcoholic' and 'alcoholism' should consider the alternative of not knowing what was the matter with them and could believe only that they were hopelessly insane."
Enjoy your listening!
