What Journalists Say About WIMN and the POWER Sources Project

WIMN has been a great tool in finding diverse guests for a lot of our programming as well as pointing out important issues to us.

Women In Media & News has built an invaluable resource in the Power Sources Project. Through it, I am always able to locate articulate, critical female voices for both edgy and everyday topics. The time sensitivity of WIMN's services, combined with the quality of the experts, make a powerful one-two punch for journalists looking to diversify their stories.

If I had called WIMN as soon as I received an assignment to write an analytical article about female politicians in the media, it would have saved me a lot of time. WIMN had all the information I needed as well as useful archive articles, and director Jennifer Pozner answered all the questions I had and then some, without taking sides or grinding axes. WIMN was immensely helpful to me and I highly recommend them as a resource for information and as a source of expert opinion.

This email is just to congratulate you on the brilliant way you express yourself, a great writing craft and a real aggressive style of putting things together ... would love to read more from WIMN.

Thanks for taking time to speak with me for my story. As always, you have some great and detailed insight on media and it's always good to get you involved in that dialogue.

I was thumbing through Bitch magazine this weekend and saw an article title that caught my attention. I took it home to read part two of your series "Triumph of the Shill," and I must say BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!! That was such a wonderfully written and well-researched piece-and not even I, the pop culture junkie that I am, could have had the strength to watch all those episodes of reality television and lived to tell about it, let alone write such a great piece on it.

Reading the article reminded me of what kind of hard core issues I too should be addressing in my work.

The existence of WIMN gives me peace of mind. It's unsettling to think of being a feminist without it; that would mean there would be no known organization to act as a women's watchdog of the gargantuan corporate media and news industries. And when sexist distortion and belittlement does happen, WIMN is out there-it's like a feminist media 911.

Congratulations on your comments in the excellent film "I Was a Teenage Feminist"! It is both entertaining and enlightening. It opens up a desperately needed dialogue in this world dominated by the corporate controlled media whose primary interest seems to be to maintain the status quo on every level: class, race and gender. You are extremely aware and articulate ...

Thanks to WIMN for your help with the girls media literacy project I'm planning. I found a ton of resources on the Jean Kilbourne web site. It was exactly what I was looking for, books, videos and web-site information. It is so nice to have Women In Media & News as a valuable resource. I am going on to produce an Image Campaign with young girls from the ages of 11 -15 about how media images make these girls feel. I think this will be great.

I also wanted to tell you that I was more than captivated at this year's Women and Media Convention when I saw your director, Jennifer Pozner, give her presentation about the "Unreality of Reality TV". Her work was abundantly researched and her video presentation was attention grabbing and thought provoking. She gave me plenty of food for fodder as she revealed the true agenda of reality television and how it hurts women mentally, spiritually and morally. The snippets that I saw only whet my appetite.

I have been a broadcast video journalist for the past 20 years and Ms. Pozner's presentation was a real eye opener for me. I actually thought that I knew a thing or two about television and now I know even more thanks to her intelligent and savvy approach to a topic that I had never heard discussed or not had even read about.

I am attempting to bring Ms. Pozner to Tampa, Florida so that she can bring the analysis of WIMN to members of the Ophelia Project Tampa Bay. The Ophelia Project-Tampa Bay's mission is to work toward an emotionally, physically and socially safe culture for all girls by developing and networking community resources, volunteers and programs. Our program reaches out to girls from the ages of 11 - 18, Ms. Pozner is reaching out to women of all ages and I highly recommend we pay attention to her message about the reality television "sneak attack" being waged on us by advertisers.

I love Jennifer's work - she and WIMN are inspirational!
