Canonball ["Canonball was born as a space to discuss, critique and honor the works of female writers. As such, at the heart of our blog is a feminist book club, where, every few weeks, we chose a new book to read and write about together. While Canonball’s focus is on the experiences of reading and writing as women, we also write posts on movies, music, television and anything else that has us scrawling out essays on napkins during our lunch breaks – all from an intersectional feminist lens. The name Canonball comes from our desire to break down barriers to discussing gender and misogyny, while also challenging the prevailing (white, male) literary canon. People of all kinds who are committed to productive conversations about feminism are welcome here."]

Everyday Feminism ("Everyday Feminism strives to end the everyday violence, dominance, and silencing used against people due to their gender, sexual orientation, race, and class and make self-determination and loving communities a new norm. We take an inside-out approach to social change because we believe that personal transformation and social transformation are interdependent. People who have internalized society’s messages about not being good enough and deserving to be oppressed, violated, exploited discriminated against are not likely to rise up to change the system. But the more people can free themselves of these messages and believe in their inherent self-worth, the more they are able to come together to stand up for broader social change. This belief informs our unique approach in the feminist movement. We help people in applying feminism to work through issues, stand up for themselves, live their truth, and take collective action. Through our online platform, we give people the concrete knowledge, practical skills, and community support to help them create change in their own lives and communities. In June 2012, we launched the online magazine and currently have 150-200,000 average monthly visitors and a Facebook page of over 45,000 fans. In April 2013, we launched radio talk show, forum, and online courses.")

The F Word: Feminist Media Collective [Vancouver, Canada: "We are a grassroots feminist media collective operating out of Vancouver BC. The F Word Radio Show has been on air since 2007. We operate from the following principles and values: •We seek to facilitate feminist dialogue in the community and use media as a foundation for positive social change •We acknowledge media as a primary mode of cultural communication and we hope to open a space for alternative feminist dialogue that does not exist in mainstream media •We acknowledge that creating media is a privilege and it is our responsibility to share this media space with members of the women’s community who may not otherwise have access to the same level of privilege/media space. •We seek to make feminism engaging and accessible to anyone who, by various social factors, has felt alienated or excluded by representations of feminism in mainstream culture. •We work to create a culture of respect and actively resist any form of oppression on the basis of gender, race, culture, class, language, sexual orientation, ability, age, or life experience.)

Gender Focus [Canada: Gender Focus looks at politics, pop culture, and current events from an anti-racist feminist perspective. We aim to showcase news and opinion relating to issues of social inequality, stereotyping and representations of marginalized groups in society, and the intersections between gender and public policy.]

Fellow contributors include graduate students, journalists and corporate shills writing under assumed names. We are always looking for more voices."]

WIMN ["Women In Media & News (WIMN), a national media analysis, education and advocacy group, was founded in 2001 by media critic and journalist Jennifer L. Pozner with guidance from a diverse team of directors and advisors including journalists, feminists, social justice activists and media reform advocates. ... WIMN works to increase women's presence in the public debate, emphasizing those who are least often heard, including women of color, low-income women, lesbians, youth and older women. WIMN analyzes representations of women in media; trains women's and social justice groups to hold media outlets accountable to the public interest; advocates for policy reform and structural change; and works with journalists to broaden the quantity and diversity of women's voices appearing in the media. WIMN promotes equity for women as subjects, sources and producers because accurate, diverse news and entertainment media are essential to a vibrant democracy and an informed public. Our Programs: We believe strongly that media is a women's issue, from content to production to policy. Complex problems require complex solutions, so WIMN's programs utilize multiple strategies: • Media Analysis: including articles, op-eds and studies written by WIMN's staff and board; a dynamic multimedia lecture series for high school and college campus groups on topics involving women, media, politics and pop culture; participation in conferences and public discussions; and WIMN's Voices, a media-monitoring group blog. • Media Education: including skills-building media training workshops for campus groups and community organizations across the United States, and the development of advocacy materials and resource guides for media activists. • Media Outreach: WIMN's POWER (Perspectives Of Women Expand Reporting) Sources Project works with journalists, editors and producers to improve the range and diversity of women's voices appearing in the media. • Media Reform: WIMN engages in ongoing coalition work, public awareness campaigns and other advocacy efforts to transform the media through structural changes in media policy. In 2006, this work will include the Afghan Women's Media Organizing Project, WIMN's strategic partnership with Women for Afghan Women."]
