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.
