Women's Media Center (AWMC): www.awmc.com/about/default.htm
A project of the International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF). The
IWMF was founded in 1990 with a mission of strengthening the role
of women in the news media worldwide, based on the belief that no
press is truly free unless women share an equal voice. The IWMF launched
the AWMC in 1997 to provide African women journalists the training,
resources and tools they need to compete equally with their male colleagues.
Working with women's media networks, media associations, NGOs, media
companies and individuals, the AWMC offers a wide range of programs
for women journalists throughout Africa. Their web site is available
in English and French.
