I give money to womens enews because its work is a vital outlet for reporting on issues that are too often missing from mainstream media. I also love that they have a strong presence in the Arab world, for reporting by and about women in that region. Information is key in helping women connect and see alternatives to patterns that hold women back.

Ways to make it better...

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

suggest that they work to get their reporters included as experts and commentators on cable news, which is always looking for new voices.

Women's eNews publishes powerful stories and commentary about women's issues around the world that are often not covered in other news media. I especially like the new Teen Voices section which features article by and about young women. Thank you!

This group publishes news stories about women and affecting women all over the world, which help clear the view for what is happening, what isn't, what is changing, and where our involvement may make a difference. Without information, no progress is made - this organization spreads the information, and supports women and women journalists many places in the world.

Stories, particularly international ones, which would never be published in standard news outlets are covered, giving readers a much better idea of what is going on and to/by whom, in the world. I am often brought up short with a story, where something I had never thought of is described and discussed. It actually encourages me, to see these corners of what is completely dim and featureless in main media. I really appreciate their information!

The Great!

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

Knowing many bright spots I had not known of in the world, and realizing that women have a long way to go to gain equality in even what I thought was the best of places.

Ways to make it better...

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

Try to get more of the stories included in other media and organizations - I don't remember seeing any I've read in the Women's eNews repeated in other media (TV, liberal newsletters, women's organizations' newsletters, even John Stewart!).

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

I feel they are not widely known, so have a limited pool to tap for contributions and stated their need

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I have a responsibility to support them if possible, when they do something I use and appreciate.

What would you tell others about this organization?

It will give you stories and information you'd never thought about before.

Review from Guidestar

Women's eNews publishes stories of particular interest to women in a unique way -- news for women reported and edited by women. There's no other publication quite like it. The online newspaper gives women a reliable place to get information they may not find anywhere else. And women's voices have a place to be heard and seen -- all because Women's eNews is doing a fantastic job. It's a wonderful place for women writers, editors, photographers and multimedia (video) journalists to tell women's stories -- and to showcase their talents (and get paid for their work).

The Great!

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

I've seen how much women have been helped by having access to this steady stream of relevant news. And I've seen the wonderful results the publication has had as a "home" for women journalists to get their work published.

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

If I had the means, I would double the funding of Women's eNews so its reach and impact would be even greater.

Review from Guidestar

I've supported WEN and Rita Henley since before its official founding. (I was an employee at NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund, which first sponsored it, before it gained an independent existence.) It's unique in providing a wide array of information about women both in the US and internationally from a variety of perspectives. Many of its stories are not duplicated elsewhere. Especially in view of current events in the Mideast, its decision some while ago to pay particular attention on women in that area demonstrates rare prescience.

The Great!

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

increasing my information on issues about which I was unaware, esp. its international coverage.

Ways to make it better...

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

add more in-depth stories, which would of course require more funding.

Women's eNews provides wide-ranging international coverage that keeps this international business consultant and advocate of gender equity and women's empowerment well-informed and up-to-date on evolving policies, news, activities and events that impact women. Their coverage also gives me a window on topics or women's perspectives that general media frequently overlook.



As an activist during the 2008 Presidential campaign with Women for Obama and the Women's Leadership Forum, I was drawn to WeN by it's fund-raising appeal to assure that women's voices and concerns were covered at the Democratic Convention in Denver. When I began visiting regularly the WeN website, I was astonished to see the extensive international coverage and now rely on it to stay informed.



WeN’s searing coverage of women in conflict zones is critical to exposing the breadth of problems, particularly sexual abuse as a weapon of war. It's ongoing spotlight on the Democratic Republic of the Congo resonates with me as I lived in DRC, then Zaire, where I traveled alone without concern for security to the eastern part of the country, now the epicenter of war and abuse in this mineral-rich country.



I have also participated in events organized by WeN, from film screenings to panel discussions and award presentations. An historic walk in lower Manhattan educated me about the dynamic women who fought the battle for equal rights just blocks from where I was educated and worked on Wall Street -- without a clue that I was surrounded by such supportive spirits.



I am a strong fan of WeN and wish that it did not have to expend so much energy in raising funds to operate. It is an important resource, performs a critical and needed service to keep women’s news in the forefront, and is deserving of wider support.

The Great!

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

...becoming more aware of the common daily struggles and the tools that women around the world are using to empower themselves.

Ways to make it better...

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

... expand linkages and outreach, perhaps on college campuses and among youth, so that WeN becomes the next generation’s "go to" website for women's perspectives on all issues.

We work for women's rights and I consider Woman's ENews to be an indispensable tool on a daily basis. They are always correct re their articles and I think they deserve support. There are very few if any similar sources of women's news.

The Great!

They are always up to date with their information.

I love Women's Enews. It is my only source for breaking news and local stories that really focuses on women in a systematic and thorough way. Women's Enews is dogged about finding news relevant to the plight of women. I especially love their Jeers and Cheers section.

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

Change programming in schools, promote gender equality in schools and communities, create contests to stimulate female involvement.
