Mission: Women’s eNews is an award-winning nonprofit news service covering issues of particular concern to women and creating significant social impact through its work and collaborations: The competitive advantage of Women’s eNews lies in its unique combination of three functions: 1. Serious Reporting: Women’s eNews conducts high quality journalism on serious issues that are of particular concern to women. 2. Original Coverage of Under reported Issues: Women’s eNews publishes original reporting on issues ignored by other media. Women’s eNews articles are frequently reprinted by other news outlets and feminist blogs and websites, and often catalyze social action and additional reporting by other organizations. 3. Global Scope: Women’s eNews reports on issues affecting women in the United States and around the world, and its Arabic site is aimed specifically at women in the Middle East. Women’s eNews also hires freelancer reporters from across the globe and provides them high quality editing so that they may clearly, concisely and fairly tell the stories from the perspective of those living the issues.

Results: Women’s eNews has undoubtedly had a significant social impact, directly and indirectly affecting the lives of millions of people by providing coverage of important issues largely ignored by conventional media. At a more nuanced level, the organization currently creates impact in the following ways: • Women’s eNews helps set the news agenda for conventional media; • Women’s eNews impacts opinion leaders and policymakers; • Women’s eNews is a resource and catalyst for rights organizations and activists; • Women’s eNews uncovers injustices, draws attention to issues, disseminates information, and empowers readers; • Women’s eNews helps foster, train, and support the career development of new journalists with a focus on social justice and women’s rights; • Women’s eNews raises the profiles and supports the leadership development of its 21 Leaders for the 21st Century.

Women's Enews is a news service for the 21rst century. The number and variety of differing perspectives given voice in this venue is unparalleled. The issues covered range from the most prominent to the most intimate. Although war and politics affect everyone, and both are given adequate space in Women's Enews, readers are also exposed to all sorts of other news, such as the creative and positive works being done by individuals and groups all over the world, and the seemingly hopeless and certainly unglamorous situations many of our contemporary humans are forced to exist in. So many aspects of life that normally go unnoticed in the traditional news format are a large part of the coverage in Women's Enews.

Also of primary significance for me: the Women aspect of Women's Enews is as much about the way news is presented - through thoughtful, nuanced and empathetic voices - as it is about the topics themselves.

In my opinion, the fact that a news service like this exists bodes positive for the future of humanity, in terms of our heightened awareness, compassion and universal equality.

Women's eNews has been a lifeline for me. I've worked with many different women's organizations that focus on news that is important to women and I can appreciate how difficult it is to find sources that offer unbiased information. WeN has worked as a filter, too, keeping out the barrage of sensationalist stories that can mislead and misinform.

It is crucial to the education and empowerment of women that resources like WeN are available and continue to offer alternatives to the glut of calculated and biased information that assaults us daily.

Women's eNews has been wonderful in providing information on issues that are important to women around the world. I particularly like getting information directly from women in other countries, as I have little access to such information elsewhere. Also, I like the essays and articles on issues in the United States, as Women' eNews provides analysis on topics with a focus on women and girls that I cannot find in the mainstream press.

My daily women's e-news e-mail gives me front-page news I don't see anywhere else. Recently the "City of Joy" opened in the Congo and there was no coverage except in Women's e-news.

The journalism standards are uniformly high and this news source is a treasure. THey are not a "clearinghouse" but an actual provider of news. Amazing.

This service is valuable to me as it is the only enews site which has a global focus on issues important to me. I read about women's issues from across the world, specially from India, where I am from. I check it everyday. For example today I read about India's transgender activist, I remember that they were ridiculed, marginalized group. I will now share the story on my FB page, it would require some 'courage to do so as the FB page is populated with aunts, cousins who still cling to old thoughts, but its not acceptable that we treat them the way society does, so when I become aware via the enews, its my responsibility to share the story and create awareness, generate a conversation...

I've been a Women's eNews subscriber since its inception; from there, I learn things that never come up in the mainstream media. The female perspective from Tunisia; the fact that only 17% of Congresswomen are female; arguably the frivolity of focusing on incomplete DNA testing of rape kits (given that consent, not DNA, is often the key element). These are just stories from the past few weeks alone. Sadly, this great news source still struggles financially.

I was looking for information on two different stories that were women related and I found info on both at Women's E-news! They're fulfiling a very important role by chronicling women's lives and issues of importance to women because statistics show that women are represented under 25% in mainstream media.

I love the news I get from Women's eNews - I see things I am not learning about anywhere else. Almost every week there is a piece I forward to someone and their replies are all the same. "I wish I knew about this news source before!"

It has made a real difference to some of my friends -- and my certain business peers & clients think better of me for knowing so much.

Keep up the good work.

I have a very vivid memory of sitting in 2nd grade in 1957 and learning about Pilgrims. The whole time the teacher was talking I was silently inquiring about the women Pilgrims. How did they take care of their babies, how did they make dinner, how did they take care of their clothes, why were they never the important part of the story. This continued my entire school life. Years have now passed but in that time I devoted many hours to education making sure that other young women could find the answers regarding womens' roles throughout history.
Today, I am an avid reader of Women's E-news. It gives me the details I need to know about the special role of women in our economy, society, diplomacy and entertainment. It is a vital part of my daily reading and information.

Woman’s e-news is important for woman worldwide. You are getting our message out, This is very important. We, as women, need a voice and You make a difference, for women's equality. Women's e-news both informs and inspires me. It is important to see the steady and relentless efforts worldwide to help turn the tide of oppression and lack of awareness of the status of women. The event that I held was intended to wake up the public of the inequality of the genders that is still prevalent in today’s art world. It went very well. Passerby’s loved my sculpture “Tree”. I hope that this will make a difference when it comes to women being able to exhibit their sculptures in public places. I am asking for your help to make the changes happen. All the best to you and your wonderful E-News! Thank you. Carole Feuerman FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Carole Feuerman’s Sculpture “Tree” to be Photographed on the Corner of 23rd Street & 5th Avenue at 12:00 pm May 21, 2010 This Friday, May 21, at 12:00 pm, New York-based artist Carole Feuerman will have a showing of her sculpture, Tree, which will be placed next to the Antony Gormley’s nude bronze figure. Viewers will be able to see Feuerman’s version of “Eve and Adam” in Madison Square Park on the corner of 23rd Street and 5th Avenue. Tree, 2009, Oil and Resin, 62” x 16” x 12” Courtesy of Jim Kempner Fine Art photo: Ellen Page Wilson For the past thirty years, Feuerman has consistently encountered obstacles when exhibiting her sensual artwork. After being admonished by several public institutions, including three museums, for trying to exhibit her nude female figures. The institutions, suggesting that her work was inappropriate for public display, have similarly allowed for male nude figures to exist on their premise. This double standard, for which many public art institutions are known for, is meant to be highlighted with the temporary showing of Tree next to Gormley’s nude male figure from his current exhibit, Event Horizon. Feuerman hopes that this temporary showing, inspired by her personal and professional experiences as a female artist, will serve as a platform to address women’s issues in art and society. She states that this installation is not about either artist or their individual intentions, but more about the landscapes open to men in society and not to women. A recipient of the Peabody Award, the Betty Parson Sculpture Award and the Medici Awards, Carole Feuerman’s sculpture has been in museum exhibitions and galleries throughout the world. Past solo exhibitions include a retrospective at the Amarillo Museum of Art in Texas in 2008; By the Sea, curated by John T. Spike at the Pavilion Paradiso at the Venice Biennale; and a one person show at Jim Kempner Fine Art in New York City. Recent exhibitions include Carole A. Feuerman: Reality Check at Sculpturesite Gallery, CA; Psychedelic: Optical and Visionary Art since the 1960’s at the San Antonio Museum of Art, San Antonio, TX; and an upcoming retrospective at the El Paso Museum of Art in El Paso, TX. Feuerman’s work can also be found in the permanent collections of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation; Grounds for Sculpture; The Atlantic Foundation; Fort Lauderdale Art Museum; President Mikhail S. Gorbachov Foundation; The Malcolm Forbes Magazine Collection; President Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; and Dr. Henry Kissinger.

Finding Women's eNews opened the door to a whole new world for me. Having a news organization focused solely on covering the vastly under-reported stories of women around the world brings a level of awareness and knowledge into my life that I can't get anywhere else. It is also encouraging to know Women's eNews supports young journalists and seeks out new voices to continue this tradition of women-centered news. I especially enjoy the global perspective.
