Women's Media Develops New Project/New Name

Women's Media Group started the new year with a fresh effort -
reshaping our feminist panel discussion/radio show toward a 30 minute magazine format.
Working with Cat Jarboe, our audio producer, Maya (Friedler) and
I created The Feminist Lens first on paper - and then started recording.
This is exciting. More soon.
