MISSOULA - Dr. Ruth Westheimer is scheduled to speak at a Planned Parenthood of Montana fund-raiser at the Wilma Theater on Oct. 22.
Westheimer, 76, was working for Planned Parenthood years ago when she decided to further her study of human sexuality, which later launched a career in radio, television, book writing and the lecture circuit. Westheimer has a Ph.D. in education from Columbia University and studied human sexuality at Cornell.
Her broadcast career began in 1980, when a radio station offered her a 15-minute show called "Sexually Speaking." Despite airing on Sunday nights at midnight, the show became a hit.
