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.

The Great!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Great!

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.

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.
