Geographic areas served: nearly every country across the globe

Programs: Black Maternal Health, a long running investigative series exploring the health disparities that exists for Black moms in America; Women and Poverty, a long running investigative series bringing life-bias for women economically to light; Arabic Women's eNews, an Arabic language sister site providing news and commentary for Arabic speaking women and 21 Leaders for the 21st Century, an annual leadership gala and program to support and celebrate those investing in women and girls.

Mission:
Women’s eNews is an award-winning nonprofit news service covering issues of particular concern to women and creating significant social impact through its work and collaborations:

The competitive advantage of Women’s eNews lies in its unique combination of three functions:

1. Serious Reporting: Women’s eNews conducts high quality journalism on serious issues that are of particular concern to women.

2. Original Coverage of Under reported Issues: Women’s eNews publishes original reporting on issues ignored by other media. Women’s eNews articles are frequently reprinted by other news outlets and feminist blogs and websites, and often catalyze social action and additional reporting by other organizations.

3. Global Scope: Women’s eNews reports on issues affecting women in the United States and around the world, and its Arabic site is aimed specifically at women in the Middle East. Women’s eNews also hires freelancer reporters from across the globe and provides them high quality editing so that they may clearly, concisely and fairly tell the stories from the perspective of those living the issues.
Results:
Women’s eNews has undoubtedly had a significant social impact, directly and indirectly affecting the lives of millions of people by providing coverage of important issues largely ignored by conventional media. At a more nuanced level, the organization currently creates impact in the following ways:

• Women’s eNews helps set the news agenda for conventional media;
• Women’s eNews impacts opinion leaders and policymakers;
• Women’s eNews is a resource and catalyst for rights organizations and activists;
• Women’s eNews uncovers injustices, draws attention to issues, disseminates information, and empowers readers;
• Women’s eNews helps foster, train, and support the career development of new journalists with a focus on social justice and women’s rights;
• Women’s eNews raises the profiles and supports the leadership development of its 21 Leaders for the 21st Century.
