Women's eNews provides information that is not readily available to the general public about human and women's rights issues everywhere. Furthermore, the news is reader accessible in terms of the level of English used (not academic) , so I can be sure others will understand it when I use excerpts in teaching.

Women's eNews is an invaluable resource for me both as an individual and as an academic.

I routinely teach undergraduate and graduate level courses that focus on women's lives and rights (and wrongs). To do so effectively, I rely on Women's eNews for up-to-the-minute journalism on the
status of women and girls worldwide.

Women's eNews is a significant resource, readily accessible for students. It is a wonderful teaching tool.

I am a single mother raising my two sons in poverty in Iowa City, Iowa, USA. I must qualify this by saying we live in poverty "American style". We have a roof over our heads and enough food to eat. I was raised in privilege, so especially appreciate the invaluable education that living in poverty provides. I could not have learned the lessons I have and am, nor would my consciousness have been raised, I believe, -without this experience.

My older son is now a college sophomore, financially independent, and while excelling in academia as he pursues a double major, works part time. My younger son will enter junior high this year. He also excels in school, participates in competitive fencing, and plays the saxophone.

I have very little support emotionally or financially, and isolation has been one of my greatest challenges as a single parent. Although I lived abroad for nearly eight years and earned a better-than-average living before my children were born, my resume does not qualify me for more than minimum wage, presently. Lacking private transportation in a community and a state that have very little public transportation, my family has faced unique limitations as a result. Nonetheless, my skills as a mother have allowed my children to thrive and develop their potential remarkably well. I would describe my efforts these past twenty years as an act of maternal feminism.

I breast-fed both my sons for six months exclusively, then each exercised that option until the age of three. As a single mother, I experienced welfare "reform" in the U.S., a mandate that forced mothers back to work within six weeks of giving birth. Fortunately, my older son was already two, when this happened. With my second son, I found work at a daycare that let me take him to work with me and nurse him on demand throughout the day. The welfare reform case manager admonished me, saying, "there's a need for pumping!" -as he urged me to find employment. Caring for our own children isn't considered, "work". But if we take a service industry job that offers far less than a living wage and no health insurance benefits, the STATE will PAY a third-party to care for our children, at rates far above the pittance the mother herself receives during the six weeks she's allowed to be with the child exclusively. The case manager "explained" that putting mothers back into the work force was, "good for the tax base". But the truth is, many of the jobs they fill pay so little that they're exempt from paying income tax. It's not breast feeding that victimizes women, it's a culture that refuses to acknowledge the WORK THAT PARENTING IS, and fails to support mothers in their respective roles as parent and employee.

It feels like a miracle to me, -how the spiritual is made tangible, via the internet. The possibilities could well be endless: the possibilities for connecting with other women the world over. By linking our minds, our hearts, and our hands, we can create astounding degrees of change and progress, together. We needn't leave one another behind, nor remain unknown to one another. Women's eNews is a fantastic resource! -One that I am so grateful to have found. It is a great educational tool.

Women’s eNews is my main source of substantive news covering issues of particular concern to women and providing women’s perspectives on public policy. I can't find this news any other place. Women's eNews enhances my abilility to think and act globally as well as spur ideas locally. It is the most forwarded piece of email I receive each day and I really appreciate it as do all of my women friends when i send them a link or information I think they might find of interest to them.
Thank you!

my everyday life and those of my friends and family. These articles help me conect what I am hearing out there in the public media with how it affects my and all women worldwide. I have been challenged to make a difference and often contribute to campaigns I would not have otherwise known about.

keep up the good work! I like it just the way it is. By limiting the information to one email page daily, I do not feel overwhelmed and I can always save the information if I want to act later.

I just read Jurate Kazickas article about Eve Ensler's "City of Joy" in the Congo. That story came to life right on my screen, no video needed, just Eve's energy and the writer's heart. No mainstream media reported on this story or if they did, no way could they portray the story as this writer for Womens Enews did. So if you have empathy for Congolese women raped because they're bystanders in a resource war -- by the way, a resource war that allows us from the West to indulge in our personal electronics -- than you really only have one choice: Womens Enews for comprehensive and unbiased coverage. It makes me numb to think the mainstream media may decide to bury the story because their sold-out to SONY advertising dollars. Womens Enews, on the other hand, inspires me!

For news about the Congo and Congolese women and other controversial issues the mainstream media is too afraid to cover or sold-out to cover, you have an outlet a nonprofit that doesn't bend to outside pressure...Womens Enews.

I read Women's eNews EVERY DAY. As a health care practitioner I consider Women's eNews an essential part of my practice in that the information about women and women's health is hard to get consistently anywhere else- I pass on the site to all my clients, especially the women. I also appreciate the broad scope of the reporting.

I was turned on to Women's eNews after reading Half the Sky by Nick Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. They reccomended Women's eNews as a credible source of information for those who wanted to stay up on issues impacting women around the world. I look forward to getting Women's eNews daily email!

I have been reading Women's E-news for a long time, and look forward to it everyday. The information is timely, accurate and speaks to issues that the other sources ignore. When the news says women and children first, they mean, who can we leave out? When Women's E-news says women and children first, it means what can we do to enhance the life of every woman and every child? I use Women's enews in my classes that I teach at Rutgers University. For example, in my Women, Culture & Society undergraduate class, many of the articles that have to do with how women are viewed in the US and the world fit right into my curriculum. When we study Women, war and Terrorism, one of the units, the articles that show are women are treated in other countries such as the women on Women's Shleter in Afghanastan or the one in January about the UN Superagency for women, all are excellent teaching tools. I also use the women's enews in my gradate social work class on Violence and Abuse in Childhood and encourage my students to subscribe to the daily enews.

Perhaps what is most important to me is that this organization not only speaks to my teaching and my brain, it speaks to my heart.
