I’m a firm believer that everything in life is a reflection of the conversations that exist between people, groups, communities, and society at large. Things – whether tangible or not – have their origins in language, exist in cultures, and permeate society through conversation. This is evident in fashion trends, viral videos, binding acts such as marriage, projects like the World Wide Web, and even the space station. Common denominator? Language. A thought becomes a word and gains exponential traction by way of conversations. The most powerful channel we have to distribute these conversations is the media. Particularly the news media.
Women’s groups around the country have banded together to say “enough”. Enough of the blatant, and not so blatant, sexism in journalism. WOC believes that sexism knows no party affiliation and it is inexcusable, outrageous, and should be called out at every turn
Women On Change founder Jeanose Lexima says,
“When it comes to women’s issues, it isn’t about which “party” line and what “our party values” are. It is about women and the issues we face daily around the world. This is the time for us to embrace ourselves and say,’ it is time for a change’, and we do this by getting behind women like Michelle Bachman and others, because change happens by women leading us into the future for a better tomorrow”!
