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.

I was a reporter and foreign correspondent for major media for more than 20 years, and wrote many stories about women's second-class status and abuses against them in many countries. These rarely received front-page play and were often cut or languished on hold for several weeks. WomensENews has made such dismissive treatment more or less impossible now by creating a steady drumbeat of compelling and well-researched news items about women's situation that editors cannot ignore or dismiss as isolated cases. The grim reality of too many women's lives is often ignored because it is such an integral part of daily reality. This is what WomensENews spotlights, making it impossible for the world to look away any longer.

Women's E-News is the first email I read of the day. The information is concise, accurate, and relevant.

It's great because it isn't just about what is happening in the US, but includes articles about what is going on internationally.

The point of view is honest, unbiased, yet
compassionate.

The topics in Women's E-News provides discussion material for a group of women I belong to. We use it to stay informed and to keep up-to-date in what is happening in the world, and to incorporate changes in our daily lives to be supportive of women everywhere.

I think this website fits the general usage of people having interests on gender issues. It spreads diverse information, covering different regions, different topics, and different communities. Such contribution makes big difference to other members around the world, saying that activists would not only pay attention to First-World issues. This diversity also leads to a little bit chaos. It would be nice if the categorization( together with the arrangement that put categories at the top of it) can undergo some brain-storming.
Otherwise, I love the rich information it has provided me from the very first moment visiting this website. Thanks for the organization behind it.

Women's eNews truly reflects the opinion of women across social, economic, health and a myriad of concerns that women face on a daily basis.

By bringing issues that are often covertly dismissed by the establishment as unimportant gives women the incentive to fight for what is right in
their opinion.

Since finding Women's eNews I have been able to personally broaden my own horizons and bring tothe attention of like minded women the importance of knowledge as a power base.

Subject matter is often controversial and not necessarily of my own personal belief, however, by opening up debate it demysifies the rumour and fabrication associated with a particular subject.

Friends have thanked me for putting them in touch with this example of how free speech can be used to the benefit of all.

Every day I read Women's eNews because every day they produce original reporting on issues that concern women. They cover topics and news that other media outlets tend to ignore, and in a world of male dominated news coverage and topics, Women's eNews is the best source for and about women.

Make it possible for them to create more than one original piece of reporting per day.

Womensenews is a critical voice in the chatter of today's infotainment.
It is increasing difficult to separate out the intelligent commentary from the slanted/ politically motivated commentary. It is important to search for that news that gives a voice to our story, the women's story. as an
example - the demonstration/revolution in Egypt was not just the man's story. It is a story of women who found their power and joined the demonstrations in Tahrir Square.
I look forward to the perspective shared by women around the world and no place gives that to me as clearly as Womensenews with their 300 stringers around the world.
The women's movement needs the voice of other women, through our lens, not the viewpoint of a man, about women's issues. So, in my view, the presence of Womensenews assures that our perspective is considered, and that - literally - we have a seat at the table - when issues are being decided.
That is critically important to reveal what mainstream media is not sharing. So, this is about my story - developing my voice and learning about my power to influence the world around me, requires that I see role models, who look like me and are not afraid to speak their minds.
