I have been active in breastfeeding support and advocacy for over 40 years. Things have changed a lot in the media's treatment of this topic in four decades, from a hush-hush attitude in the early days to headline exploitation for titillating the reader today. Women's eNews has been a refreshing change. They cover breastfeeding as the important women's issue it is. They mention breastfeeding when it is relevant in stories on other topics. No sensationalism, no proselytizing, just the facts, presented with respect. This, in taddition to their many other virtues (global viewpoint, coverage of "minority" news and views, Arabic language service, etc.) has made me a loyal reader and contributor.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have met reporters from Women's eNews at a couple of national conference. I was interviewed once, and I watched the way both reporters covered the territory, very efficiently tending to business, talking to a variety of participants. When I read their articles later, I thought they accurately presented what I had seen happening.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
no changes...except increase their funding!
Professional with expertise in this field & As a faithful reader, I have shared Women's eNews stories on a variety of topics with my colleagues in the "lactation world.".
