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 »
Sat, 1 December 2012
On World AIDS Day, Robin speaks with Dazon Dixon Diallo of SisterLove, Inc. about the impact of HIV and AIDS on women and girls in the United States; and with Paula Donovan of AIDS-Free World about its impact internationally. Special Guest: the prolific, much-decorated author Ursula K. Le Guin, on why it is that her literature gets classified as "genre" fiction, the hard work of translation and story selection for an anthology, and the changing definitions of feminism. Robin debunks the spin in right-wing propaganda phrases "death tax" and "tax relief," and asks why there is not more outrage over Saudi restrictions on the free movement of women that exceed some of the Taliban's worst, more publicized, offenses. Can it be oil?
