The Women’s Media Center

The Women's Media Center's goal is to make women visible and powerful in the media. Founded in 2005 by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem, the WMC works with media to ensure that women’s realities are covered and women’s voices are heard. We do this by:  researching and monitoring media; creating and modeling original online, print, and radio content; training women and girls to participate in media; and promoting media-experienced women experts in all fields. We are directly engaged with the media at every level to work toward a diverse group of women being present in newsrooms, on air, in print and online, in film, entertainment, and theater--as sources and subjects, in bylines and credits, in the field and in the front office.

“The Women’s Media Center exists to change the status of women in media. Because 51 percent of our population is women, and only 3 percent of all clout positions in media are held by women, The Women’s Media Center Awards were created to honor champions for women who use their media platforms to tell the stories, facts and solutions crucial to all viewers, and to advance opportunities for women in media,” says Julie Burton, president of The Women’s Media Center. “Because media tells our stories and influences the role of women in every part of society, we are proud to honor these amazing women who set the standard for what media should look like when it gives voice to the female half of
the country.”
