If you haven’t heard about The Women’s Media Center, please take a few minutes to read this intro from their website. Awesome. Empowering. Inspiring.
“The Women’s Media Center makes women visible and powerful in the media. Led by our Interim President, Julie Burton, 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.” Thank you, ladies!
Twenty-seven awesome women have been nominated for the WMC 2011 Social Media Award, including SheWrites.com co-founder Kamy Wicoff. Awesome, inspiring, and empowering are words that easily apply to her as well. As far as I know, SheWrites is the largest online community of women writers in the world. It’s an amazing source of information, support, and advice and the best networking party going. If you are a writer and haven’t joined, check it out and then try to think of one good reason why you wouldn’t join. I’m just saying …
Every one of the women nominated is worthy of winning so please cast a vote.
Cast your vote for the 2011 Social Media Award!
