I give money to womens enews because its work is a vital outlet for reporting on issues that are too often missing from mainstream media. I also love that they have a strong presence in the Arab world, for reporting by and about women in that region. Information is key in helping women connect and see alternatives to patterns that hold women back.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

suggest that they work to get their reporters included as experts and commentators on cable news, which is always looking for new voices.

Women's eNews publishes powerful stories and commentary about women's issues around the world that are often not covered in other news media. I especially like the new Teen Voices section which features article by and about young women. Thank you!

This group publishes news stories about women and affecting women all over the world, which help clear the view for what is happening, what isn't, what is changing, and where our involvement may make a difference. Without information, no progress is made - this organization spreads the information, and supports women and women journalists many places in the world.

Stories, particularly international ones, which would never be published in standard news outlets are covered, giving readers a much better idea of what is going on and to/by whom, in the world. I am often brought up short with a story, where something I had never thought of is described and discussed. It actually encourages me, to see these corners of what is completely dim and featureless in main media. I really appreciate their information!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Knowing many bright spots I had not known of in the world, and realizing that women have a long way to go to gain equality in even what I thought was the best of places.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to get more of the stories included in other media and organizations - I don't remember seeing any I've read in the Women's eNews repeated in other media (TV, liberal newsletters, women's organizations' newsletters, even John Stewart!).

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

I have a responsibility to support them if possible, when they do something I use and appreciate.

What would you tell others about this organization?

It will give you stories and information you'd never thought about before.

People don't talk about domestic violence in NY's diverse Muslim communities any more than they do in other communities. But for more than five years, Turning Point for Women and Families has been a visible presence at Pakistan Day and other parades, at mosques, and community events letting women know that there is a place they can turn for help in their home language. Perhaps I most admire the work talented youth organizers do each week with the girls group. And girls and young women from around the city go to TP's Mecca to Manhattan workshops in the spring, learning public speaking and a range of other empowering skills.

Its Women's History Month events are always packed, and the annual mother/daughter picnic is a fun and moving moment in TP's calendar.

I've learned first hand from women who have navigated horrible home situations that the dv support is vital.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Before she joined our board, Rabia spoke at one of TP's Ramadan iftars about the care and power she absorbed from staff as she struggled with a violent husband even while her family urged her to submit. Another speaker, Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar, translated the Koran and illuminated the ways that it has been misinterpreted to support male control. TP engages with the issue of women's empowerment at every level, from direct service, to broad community discussion.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

enlarge the board. We need more hands on deck, both in oversight, event planning and fundraising. That way, we can hire the deputy director who will free our talented director Robina Niaz to contribute more broadly to the transformation we all seek.

My name is Shafiqa Habibi executive director of the New Afghanistan Association,
NAWA.

NAWA was established on January 1999, and it is a cultural and educational organization with limited personnel but supreme achievements and follows the following goals:
** Afghan
society specially women and girls knowledge upgrading through educational, cultural programs and capacity building.
** Provision and advocacy for Afghan society especially women and girls to participate in country reconstruction process through:
- Conducting literacy (Fast learning Program) for illiterate girls and young women.
-Training journalism programs for women and girls, holding information, cultural programs, workshops, seminars. By women journalist center, which has more then 100 active women journalists members in Kabul and provinces media,
-Radio &TV programs to aware, research analysis of human rights, women rights, gender equality, violence against women civil society, and advocacy for justice, which is produced in
Hareer production studio belong to NAWA,then broadcasted by afghan media,

NAWA received several televised projects from donors ,one of the best project was :
The of SILENT VOICE OF WAR VICTIMES through TV programs that had been implemented successfully by NAWA. and for the first time many victims participated in TV programs, and they did not afraid from War Lords in Afghanistan : In one of the TV programs, an old woman (Zia Gul) said: “In Soviet war I lost my two sons and one brother and one of my son‘s became disable and my husband ‘s feet are paralyzed. Now she doesn’t have the ability to find food for her disable son and husband.”
Another war victim Ms. Sayed Begum from Kapesa province said: “In Soviet wars our house was hit by a racket my husband, son and daughter died. Another son was working in cultivated field that suddenly a bullet was fired to his heart and he died. Her third son is missing and her fourth son has mental problems

The New Afghanistan Women Association (NAWA) thinks that, These kinds of TV programs were not broadcasted from any TV network yet so this is very important way to solve these problems by raising war victims voice and explaining their pains, sorrows by themselves through TV programs .First Each program had Message or correspondence of Transitional justice for war victims and government will pay attention to this tragedy and second thing is that charitable Foundations and benevolent people will help these miserable victims.

,
In one of the survey ,people gave me the address of a house that all of its members were war victims there was a young girl that her tow hands, and a boy that his tow legs were cut by an explosion in their house. The girl ate and write with her feet. You can watch their images in You Tube.


For helping these families I Shafiqa Habibi joint to Afghanistan Social Foundation
.This Foundation is supporting them and giving them some amount of money every month which is helping these war victims to live.

As many of us are aware, most news media outlets do feature female writers, do not cover stories on women and in general not serve women. What makes Women's eNews so extraordinary is the website covers international women's issues that would otherwise be not accessible while providing bold perspectives that are often missing in mainstream media. Women's eNews reporting is not only engaging but offers an unparalleled breadth and depth offering more than just english speaking women the chance to learn. Their Arabic website which translates Women's eNews articles into Arabic as well as produce original content in Arabic also offers a voice and education to women across the world which is something entirely unique. I am an avid reader and supporter of Women's eNews and am happy to recommend and rate them very highly!

Women's eNews publishes stories of particular interest to women in a unique way -- news for women reported and edited by women. There's no other publication quite like it. The online newspaper gives women a reliable place to get information they may not find anywhere else. And women's voices have a place to be heard and seen -- all because Women's eNews is doing a fantastic job. It's a wonderful place for women writers, editors, photographers and multimedia (video) journalists to tell women's stories -- and to showcase their talents (and get paid for their work).

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen how much women have been helped by having access to this steady stream of relevant news. And I've seen the wonderful results the publication has had as a "home" for women journalists to get their work published.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If I had the means, I would double the funding of Women's eNews so its reach and impact would be even greater.

Review from Guidestar

Women's eNews has been a lifeline for me. I've worked with many different women's organizations that focus on news that is important to women and I can appreciate how difficult it is to find sources that offer unbiased information. WeN has worked as a filter, too, keeping out the barrage of sensationalist stories that can mislead and misinform.

It is crucial to the education and empowerment of women that resources like WeN are available and continue to offer alternatives to the glut of calculated and biased information that assaults us daily.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

discussions sparked by topics about which I've learned through the articles and resources provided. WeN gives me a chance not only to keep myself up to date regarding the issues facing women all over the world, but it's given me context for how I fit in and helped inspire me to share my knowledge and creativity with others.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it more available locally. Perhaps state chapters could address local women's issues for a greater sense of action and would empower more women to pay attention and take action.
