I look forward to Womens eNews in my inbox every day. Women's eNews fills a critical gap of traditional journalism. They write stories of the triumphs and challenges that women face worldwide. Their reporting inspires me to continue to work for causes that support women and girls. I am involved in a non-profit that supports women in East Africa through micro lending. Women's enews has confirmed my belief that women should be supported worldwide to make positive changes in their families, communities and countries.
Their stories highlight areas where we as global citizens can improve and where women have triumphed over great adversity. It inspires me.

Women's Enews is a vital news outlet that I trust to give unbiased, thorough news about what women are doing, what women are dealing with, and laws and research that affects us in both positive and negative ways. The mainstream news is too often redundant and does not investigate, or even report on, topics important to women. We women are too often ignored but for stereotypical projections that are much too commonly found in mainstream news. Women's Enews offers an alternative. I often forward their reports to younger women I know, or mothers with young children. And I am usually sent a big 'thank you' email in return. I hope you support them with as much financial help as possible.

Becoming more aware of images of women in mainstream media, more conscious of choices I make in projecting myself as a women, using the news they provide to educate younger women and inspire stronger self-image and confidence in themselves,

Try and give them a stronger voice so they can have an impact on mainstream media and reduce the need for a separate women's news organization! it would be great if mainstream media were more balanced in their reports and organizations like Women's Enews are one step in that direction.

Although I do not read the Women's e News every day, nor do I read the news in general, when I do so I prefer to read the stories that are less likely to make the news in the mainstream press.

Also, women are interesting to me as people. I retired from my private practice counseling women
in Maryland some years ago but the issues facing us are still the same.

Reading recently about the Indian night soil sweepers who carried the waste in baskets on their heads in India was a story I would have encountered only in novels if I did not have Women's eNews.

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.

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.

Work to find additional funding to expand their work.

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".
