I have been active in breastfeeding support and advocacy for over 40 years. Things have changed a lot in the media's treatment of this topic in four decades, from a hush-hush attitude in the early days to headline exploitation for titillating the reader today. Women's eNews has been a refreshing change. They cover breastfeeding as the important women's issue it is. They mention breastfeeding when it is relevant in stories on other topics. No sensationalism, no proselytizing, just the facts, presented with respect. This, in taddition to their many other virtues (global viewpoint, coverage of "minority" news and views, Arabic language service, etc.) has made me a loyal reader and contributor.

The Great!

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

I have met reporters from Women's eNews at a couple of national conference. I was interviewed once, and I watched the way both reporters covered the territory, very efficiently tending to business, talking to a variety of participants. When I read their articles later, I thought they accurately presented what I had seen happening.

Women's eNews provides news stories concerning women's issues, not just locally, but from all around the world. It is a vital, necessary and integral part of our community, as they cover specific topics of importance to women -- stories which may not be given priority in other media outlets.

There should be more attention to Women's enews because it tells the truth without hype or distorting the facts. The only time this happens is when the facts are not known by a respective author at any given time, who still does his or her best to record their stories as accurately as possible. Womens Enews is not just for women; no one can be disconnected from women, especially children. In other words, the topics covered in Womens enews are relevant to families and all populations whose lives women touch. I can't think of anyone this leaves out in terms of truthful and current journalism that's timely and as accurate as possible. The more exposure these issues get, the better.

The Great!

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

Its accurate reports regarding women in the courts on both sides of the bench, the true stories of what goes on in our country's courtrooms is stranger than fiction. Regular news does not represent how women are regarded in the courts, by other women who either do not know the impact of their actions, or think they are untouchable.

Ways to make it better...

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

Change the name or format so that its truth in journalism were better and more appropriately exposed.

I recently had the opportunity of volunteering at Women's eNews. Although I was only there for a short while, I was quite impressed with this group of women that are hard working and dedicated to providing women with news on issues that are not available to them through other media outlets. It was truly a pleasure meeting and working with Rita Henley Jensen and her staff and I wish them only the best as they continue on with their mission.

The Great!

Even in this twenty-first century as women continue to break gender barriers and glass ceilings, in the mass media they are still too often under-represented, marginalized, stereotyped or objectified. That's why Women's eNews provides such a valuable service in presenting the stories of, for, and by women from around the world that show the breadth, depth, and diversity of womankind. The daily email story from them can be informative, disturbing, moving, and/or inspirational. It's one of the few must-read organizational emails of the many I receive. They also are savvy enough to provide occasional comic relief (and prove that women DO have a sense of humor) through the cartoons of Nicole Hollander and Liza Donnelly.

I share Women's eNews stories often with my classmates from an international Gender and Peace Building program, with family members, and with friends on email and social networks. If every reader of this service does the same, who knows what the cumulative ripple effect could be? Perhaps that the next generation of media makers will treat women more equitably.

The Great!

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

Reading their daily offerings about women and our issues from around the world and sharing them with others. Being inspired to learn more about some of the issues discussed and/or contributing to good efforts or causes presented.

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

Have them solicit writings from their readers at least once a year, or have a Readers Respond entry on occasion.

I belong to Business and Professional Women's organization (BPW) who's mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education and information. Our National Foundation issues, and state and local Legislative Platforms are key to the work of BPW. I' ve utilized Women's ENews articles and relied on it for information that helps us promote our issues and educate members, the community and in some cases our legislators about issues that we support and lobby for. It keeps me abreast of the latest news that affects women's issues and women's lives.

The Great!

By being better informed on the issues that affect women and their families, I am a better advocate for issues on my organization's Legislative Platform, and can more effectively lobby, and support other organizations with similar missions and concerns.

Have appreciated the changes to the newsletters that have been made. Don't have any other suggestions at this time.

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.

Women's e-News provides me with important and reliable information that I otherwise would not have access to. Its format, as a brief daily email, works well in my busy life. I appreciate learning about the lives of women in other parts of the world as well as reading about what is going on closer to home. Women's e-News shines a light on vital issues that often are not getting the attention they deserve.

just keep doing the great job they are doing.

Women's eNews gets to the heart of what matters, to me and to the world. Trying to find the information from this wonderful resource in the daily news columns, or on television broadcasts, is effortful, and usually fruitless.
The rampant abuse, rape, disfigurement, burnings, and murders of
women and girls throughout the world occurs daily but is seemingly taken for granted and not reported on. It will stop when more and more people learn of it and attend to it. Constant attention by the media, though it would be repetitive, like the daily reporting of the price of gasoline at the pump or other economic issues, will produce a sense of urgency and eventual results.
Were it not for the persistence of these stories in Women's eNews they would likely be unknown by men (other than those who are committing the atrocities.
The hope for our world, it seems obvious, lies in the empowerment of women. The men, like myself, have made a bloody mess of things.
I thank Women's eNews for their substantial part in helping to improve life for women, girls, men and boys, and all beings.

The Great!

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

learn a lot more about it and the wealth of information it provides and see if any beneficial suggestions arise. Until then I would not change anything.

My daily women's e-news e-mail gives me front-page news I don't see anywhere else. Recently the "City of Joy" opened in the Congo and there was no coverage except in Women's e-news.

The journalism standards are uniformly high and this news source is a treasure. THey are not a
"clearinghouse" but an actual provider of news. Amazing.
