I will be presenting my research on Women's eNews to colleagues at Butler University on Monday, November 9:
While the right to communicate is a basic human right, women continue to be excluded from the news media. In response, some women’s groups have created alternative media that focus on women. This presentation considers the efforts of the New York-based online news service Women’s eNews and in particular the creation of its Arabic news site. Women’s eNews covers international women’s issues on a regular basis through freelance correspondents from over the world. Results of this study are based on an institutional analysis, in-depth interviews, and an analysis of international stories published by Women’s eNews since 2000.
