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.

WomensENews provides me with information and inspiration in a way that no other organization does. The general media tends to ignore the wide world of so called women's issues - which in fact affect the health and wellbeing not only of women, but of families and communities. Educating women raises the socio-economic level of the whole community. Understanding women's issues around the globe is crucial to developing a humane and sustainable world.

As a professor I often urged my women's studies students to subscribe to ENEWS - they would discuss what they learned with animation. Women's ENEWS brings stories not found elsewhere to many.

No one covers women's rights, feminist history and other issues -- with the stories told in women's voices -- the way that Women's eNews does.

I've published a dozen books on the history of American women, and Women's E-News does an excellent job of keeping me current. I read it every day and often file the weekly summary for future chronologies. Unlike much of what is on the internet, it is absolutely reliable information -- and on the rare occasions when they make a mistake, they correct it.

Women's Enews is a vital part of exploring and keeping up-to-date about the rapidly-changing world of women, both those in the news and the vasr majority in the world who are in a daily struggle, trying to make their lives and their children's lives better. It is a realisitc but hopeful commentary on our world.

I read Women's ENews to stay on top of news and issues affecting women in the United States and around the world. I often assign articles from Women's ENews to the students in my Intro to Women's Studies classes so that they can see how the issues we're studying affect women globally. The emphasis on women's empowerment (women's movements and organizations that are making a difference in the quality of women's lives all around the world) is something that my students find inspiring. I also appreciate the commentary for providing new perspectives on important issues. Women's ENews presents all this with sympathy and respect for the women it covers, and with the recognition that women matter. It's one of very few media resources that puts women's issues and concerns at the center.

Women's ENews is an invaluable tool for introducing students to the reality of the news worthy presence of women in the world. Too few college students read any news, so making classes subscribe to WEN creates a good center of gravity, and provides concrete examples of the many themes/concepts developed in women's studies classes. Women's Enews is, in my opinion, the MOST classroom friendly feminist media source.

Women's eNews brings to the surface issues affecting women and compelling stories that illuminate the challenges women and girls face in many cultures. The information, and the high-level rendering of the articles that appear daily, simply do not exist in any other forum.

As a professional journalist, I found Womens ENews to be a breath of fresh air. They gave me the green light to write about important (and often ignored) stories that impact women's lives. They're willing to explore issues that other publications won't, and when it comes to editing, they don't miss a thing. They are passionate about offering thoroughly vetted, quality reporting. It's a joy to write for them, and its so vital that they exist.

I've been subscribing to Wemen's ENews for many years. It is my daily dose of feminist news from all over the world. I generally only have time to read one or two news articles a day and the email I get from them is #1 on that short list. I often bring stories from WEN into my classes (I'm a professor of Sociology), and email articles to students and colleagues. I have seen this organization improve their communications, their website, and the scope of their coverage for years now, and have been consistently impressed. I do not have current suggestions for improvement!
