Review for Women's eNews, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

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!).
