30 women in honor of 30 years

Filed under: Featured Feminist — Tags: , , , — Melanie @ 7:04 pm

Reality television pseudo celebrities, ultra-thin models and highly polished, high profile film stars are not the only women available for girls and women to emulate and admire.  In our continued effort to bring you new sheroes, women past and present, who have made and are making incredible contributions on a political and/or cultural level, we ask you to link to the Women’s Media Center.

If you’re not in the know yet, you should be. What is the Women’s Media Center?

The Women’s Media Center makes women visible and powerful in the media. Led  by our president, the former Rock the Vote head Jehmu Greene, the WMC works with the media to ensure that women’s stories are told and women’s voices are heard. We do this in three ways: through our media advocacy campaigns; by creating our own media; and by training women to participate directly in media. We are directly engaged with the media at all levels to ensure that a diverse group of women is present in newsrooms, on air, in print and online, as sources and subjects.

The Women’s Media Center was founded in 2005 as a non-profit progressive women’s media organization by writers/activists Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem.

In honor of the 30th anniversary of Women’s History Month, they’re profiling 30 extraordinary sheroes making history and contributing in vast and innumerable ways to all girls and women.
