International Women’s Media Foundation

Founded in 1990 by a group of prominent U.S. women journalists, the International Women’s Media Foundation is a Washington-based organization that is dedicated to strengthening the role of women journalists worldwide. The IWMF believes the news media worldwide are not truly free and representative without the equal voice of women. The IWMF celebrates the courage of women journalists who overcome threats and oppression to speak out on global issues. They unleash the potential of women journalists as champions of press freedom to transform the global news media. VISION: Women journalists worldwide are fully supported, protected, recognized and rewarded for their vital contributions at all levels of the news media. As a result, consumers increase their demand for news with a diversity of voices, stories and perspectives as a cornerstone of democracy and free expression. The IWMF currently serves as Deputy General Secretary of UNESCO’s Global Alliance on Media and Gender.
