Oleta Kirk Abrams

Date of Birth : Jun 12, 1927
Date of Death : Jan 8, 2005
Birth Place : Bozeman

Oleta Kirk Abrams, known to many as 'Lee' was one of the three founders of Bay Area Women Against Rape, the first rape crisis center in the U.S., and the first victim-witness advocate for the Alameda County district attorney's office. She became involved after her 15-year-old daughter was raped at her high school. Abrams was appalled at the treatment her daughter received both from the school and the hospital to which she was taken. Rather than merely protest, she enlisted two friends to found the center.
