I have been receiving Women's e-News for almost a year. In its near-daily detailed stories, I learn more about the issues women face all over the world. The stories are personalized to show the impact these issues have, but are also linked to politics, feminism, psychology, sociology and cultural studies so that their context can be amplified. I feel more in touch with women around the world. This is imperative for me, as I am in the midst of writing a doctoral dissertation about cultural projections on women and the mythologies that build up around them. Thanks to Women's e-News, I am able to examine these ideas in light of the lives of women who face unbelievable challenges and who continually succeed under the mantle of gender oppression. Through these stories and the connections they have helped me make, I am reminded daily why I am doing the work that I do.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
understanding the culurally varied experiences of women around the world, as well as coming to see the consistent threads that weave the truth of women's lives.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
include more references for reading, organizations to contact, and suggestions for action at the end of the stories. There are usually references available, but I want to be able to reach out as much as I can in my work and Women's eNews is a great source for that.
General Member of the Public & I use this site to build my knowledge and understanding of women as I write my doctoral dissertation and plan the ways in which I will help women. .
