Women's eNews covers the stories about women that are buried in the back pages of the "mainstream" media or not covered at all. Their national and international coverage helps me keep up with current events even though I rarely have time to sit down and read a conventional newspaper or magazine. In addition, they organize and partner in events that bring women's stories to the fore. Their work is invaluable.

The Great!

Women's eNews has helped advise me how to raise the profile of women 9-11 first responders on the upcoming 10th anniversary. They have also included me in their women's history walking tour.

I first heard of Women's eNews because a friend writes for them. So I subscribed to their mailing list and am now an avid reader of their content. They offer a different view of the news, a more compassionate view expressed by the women affected by issues in our society. Please check them out. I think you'll discover, like I did, that reading these stories from a woman's perspective helps to better understand our crazy world.

Born in South Africa, I have, since 1966, when I arrived in the US, been actively engaged in seeking to change the ways U.S. foreign and economic policies impact, often causing great harm, on African struggles for freedom and democracy. I was for many years Executive Director of the American Committee on Africa (ACOA), one of the key solidarity organizations relating to Africa. I am now continuing my interest from a "retirement" that still leaves me deeply engaged in key issues, and I value the keen eye with which Women's eNews watches African developments. I have maintained many contacts and information sources on the continent, but one of the continuing "lacks" is a sustained focus on the critical arena of what is happening to women in Africa. Any photo of "Africa's Leaders"
immediately highlights the problem..... woman hold up half the sky, but they are almost totally absent from leadership roles at all "publically" recognized levels, although they play a critical role at the base, community levels of their societies.

ENews provides important ongoing attention and stories about what is happening to women in Africa, with a range of reports, from vignettes on the activiities of individuals, groups or alliances, to analysis of repressive legislation, policy developments etc.

I use their material for background constantly -

I read the news regularly. I find it fills an essential gap in the papers. It keeps me updated on the hidden issues affecting women in the world that do not appear in the mainstream news. The only down side is that it is rather US-centric though.

Women's ENews makes visible and real what the powers-that-be would prefer stay invisible and disbelieved or unknown. Their 'audacity' in declaring the 'cheers and jeers' in women's lives as NEWS exposes the matrix of false priorities and propaganda masquerading as "important".

I have served as Legislative Coordinator (lobbyist)of our Arizona NOW and as as Co-Coordinator (Co-president) of our SC/WV NOW chapter. As such, I have subscribed to Women's E-news to learn and share information about the status of women in the U.S. and world-wide and the efforts and activities of Women's E-News and other organizations to assist and support women as they seek opportunities to achieve the education and training that will allow them to acquire means and equity to improve improved quality of life for themselves and their families.

Women's eNews provides great articles that you won't see in other news outlets necessarily. Also, the top article arrives in your email inbox, if you want it to, so you don't have to go searching for the information. It helps me stay on top of important news for women. Fantastic job, Women's eNews!

Women's eNews is one of the rare breeds of news outlets that dares to cover the issues that women face and are not discussed elsewhere. Women's eNews actually covers breastfeeding as a woman's right, and for that I heartily applaud them. I have been a La Leche League leader and lactation consultant for over ten years. I have faced many of the obstacles new mothers encounter which effectively strip them of their right to breastfeed. As a longtime subscriber to Women's eNews, I wrote several letters to the editors explaining the plight of women who receive no breastfeeding help paid by insurance, and very little accurate information from the medical establishment. Some feminist news organizations that I approached felt that encouraging women to breastfeed might keep them at home. But Women's eNews courageously stepped into the void and gave breastfeeding activists a real voice. Thank you Women's eNews!

The Great!

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

helping to give professionally reported breastfeeding information to others in my work, particularly information on black maternal health.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be aware that not all mothers want to go back to work and leave their children in day care--that many would like to work part time and have flexible work schedules

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the astonishing things I learned about women all over the world

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all really great and very motivated

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand into other languages, such as Spanish, and spend money on advertising which would further make the information available to women around the world

Ways to make it better...

well sometimes I find the style a little dry

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of capital

One thing I'd also say is that...

Women's eNews is the organization that brings amazing women all over the world together for their gala benefit 21 Leaders which leads to some equally amazing networking
