I recently agreed to participate in a mew media partnership between Public Radio International (PRI) and SheKnows Media in an initiative geared towards educating everyone about women’s lives today and giving a voice to women everywhere. Along with other journalists, bloggers and social media influencers, I’ve committed to share important, newsworthy stories through the Across Women’s Lives initiative.
Why is this important?
As of today, only 24 percent of all news subjects talk about women in any way. And only six percent of news stories highlight gender in/equality.
PRI has frequently covered stories about women’s issues, and now they’re aiming to bring important stories impacting women out into the world.
As a part of Across Women’s Lives, I’ll be sharing PRI stories and a few personal ones, with the #womenslives hashtag. I’m not getting paid to participate. I just believe in this initiative.
If you want to join the movement, it’s easy. Look for stories about women that resonate with you and share them. Follow the #womenslives hashtag on social media and help PRI track the reach of this project.
