The Women's Media Center works with the media to ensure that women's stories are told and women's voices are heard. We do this in the following ways: media advocacy campaigns, media monitoring for sexism, creating original content and training women and girls to participate in media.

Below is a selection of videos highlighting our work and our events and shining a spotlight on our founders, Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem.
