WOMEN'S MEDIA CENTER
The mission of The Women's Media Center is to make women visible and powerful in the media. The WMC works to ensure that women's stories are told, women's voices are heard, and the entire world of news, entertainment, and communications is represented—not just half of it.
The WMC launches media advocacy campaigns, monitors media for sexism, creates original content as features and blogs on its website, trains women and girls in media skills, and promotes media-experienced women experts. The non-profit organization directly engages with media at all levels to ensure that a diverse group of progressive women is present in newsrooms, on air, in print and online, in film, entertainment, and theater, both as sources and subjects.
The Women's Media Center was founded in 2005 by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem.Visit WomensMediaCenter.com »

Robin discusses personhood, as it applies to corporations and embryos—but not quite so much to women, Native Americans, or African-American slaves of the antebellum American South—and finds in the Constitution a perplexing suggestion that the taxes one pays (or doesn't) may be deeply linked to whether, or how much, a person is a person. Robin's guests are Cristina Azocar, director of the Center for Integration and Improvement of Journalism and a member of the Upper Mattaponi tribe to discuss the Native American vote and its impact on modern elections; Judy Norsigian, co-author and co-editor of the 40th-anniversary Our Bodies Ourselves book and a figure behind the new Our Bodies Our Votes action campaign; Brenda Berkman, one of New York City's first female firefighters, to discuss the forgotten female heroes of 9/11; and Dialla Shamas, with the Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility (CLEAR) project, to discuss the ongoing impact of 9/11 on Muslim communities in New York and the rest of the U.S.
