Schaumburg woman to appear on Katie Couric show


Erin Merryn, the Schaumburg woman behind the Erin's Law bill recently signed by Gov. Pat Quinn, will appear on the "Katie" talk show airing on ABC 7 at 3 p.m. Thursday, March 7.

Host Katie Couric is dedicating a "girl-power hour" to the celebration of International Women's Day on March 8. The show also will feature CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour and model and advocate Christy Turlington.

Merryn, a former victim of sexual abuse, is working to pass legislation in all 50 states that requires elementary and middle schools to implement age-appropriate curriculum about sexual abuse and how to speak up.
