I have been receiving Women's e-News for almost a year. In its near-daily detailed stories, I learn more about the issues women face all over the world. The stories are personalized to show the impact these issues have, but are also linked to politics, feminism, psychology, sociology and cultural studies so that their context can be amplified. I feel more in touch with women around the world. This is imperative for me, as I am in the midst of writing a doctoral dissertation about cultural projections on women and the mythologies that build up around them. Thanks to Women's e-News, I am able to examine these ideas in light of the lives of women who face unbelievable challenges and who continually succeed under the mantle of gender oppression. Through these stories and the connections they have helped me make, I am reminded daily why I am doing the work that I do.

The Great!

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

understanding the culurally varied experiences of women around the world, as well as coming to see the consistent threads that weave the truth of women's lives.

include more references for reading, organizations to contact, and suggestions for action at the end of the stories. There are usually references available, but I want to be able to reach out as much as I can in my work and Women's eNews is a great source for that.

Women's eNews covers stories about women that you can't find anywhere else. I enjoy reading about the women of the Middle East particularly and that is even more interesting given the current situation.

Women's eNews has also done a fabulous job of honoring women from around the world who
have done extraordinary things to help women and girls. I have been privileged to attend two of these events and was so impressed

I was impressed at how recognition of the value of Women's eNews has grown. The first event I went to was a start; the last one was much, much bigger and I can only believe that it has grown since then. Women's eNews has tremendous impact on their readers. I think people have found the stories so inspiring and impactful that they decide they want to do more to help.

I enjoy it the way it is and I don't know very much about how it is organized. Rita Henley Jensen, the founder and chief editor, had a vision that she has carried through with great impact.

It's good to see articles that affect women in the workplace, in the home and the community, read the stories and find out more on how to help bring change to ourselves and the communities and workplaces we are in. As a Canadian, I still find many of these issues relevant for me, though unable of course to write govt reps in the US.

I would like to see more articles on ageism, as I feel here in Canada at least that this is a very strong mindset especially with companies hiring young people with very little experience to handle positions of responsibility and importance without the background and maturity to objectively assess candidates who are older than 35 or even to work with colleagues who are ten to twenty years older than them. This is not just my own personal experience, but I've listened to and heard of number of men and women express the same opinion.

Good luck. Enjoy your articles thought don't necessarily read all of them.

This is a great resource - and the only resource of its kind - to focus on reporting news that matters to women. Like Public Radio, Women's eNews serves an essential function and I'm grateful for it!

Women's eNews helps me stay plugged into issues and organizations I care about but don't have the time to track individually. The friends who introduced me to this resource confirmed that the quality of the information meets my high standards.

I was invited to Women's eNews Organization for a film viewing and a seminar on women's issues. Upon arriving I did not know what to expect. The staff at the organization treated me as if they knew me for a lifetime. They were extremely professional and their concern on women's issues is phenomenal. What I love most about the organization is - they know how important it is for our voices to be heard in the US and all over the world. I like the fact of women not being ignored. The Women's eNews Organization brings us to the forefront!

The seminar was also wonderful - the knowledge shared that day is invaluable - it gave detailed facts and helped me look at the bigger picuture. No other organization has ever done such a great job.

Without a doubt, Women's eNews deserves the highest respect for the love and passion that is shown in the work they do.

I have been reading womenews I think it started so its been quite a few years. I am so glad this organization exists because it focuses on stories affecting women. I am also glad the news now incorporates more coverage of Third World countries and has more women of color correspondents.

I
get it via email and can refer to the actual website when I want to read more or other stories.

It does a great service to women and men by highlighting and reporting angles which may have been overlooked in the mainstream media.

It was a great step forward for communication for and by women when Rita decided to embark on this wonderful effort!

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.

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.

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