Women’s Media Center
March 12, 2012 by staff
Women’s Media Center, Women’s Media Center (WMC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit women’s organization in the United States founded in 2005 by writers/activists Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem. Led by WMC President Julie Burton, WMC’s work includes advocacy campaigns, media and leadership training, and the creation of original content.
As stated on the WMC website, the organization “works to ensure women are powerfully and visibly represented in the media” and “to diversify the media in its content and sources, so that the stories and perspectives of women and girls are more accurately portrayed.” WMC convenes panels, issues reports, organizes grassroots campaigns, and meets with media outlets to address issues of women’s representation and general diversity.
In response to the report from the American Psychological Association’s Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls, the WMC partnered with over 10 other organizations to organize the Sexualization Protest: Action, Resistance, Knowledge, also known as the SPARK Summit. The SPARK Summit is a day-long event to speak out and to push back on the sexualization of girls while igniting a movement for girls’ rights to healthy sexuality. The SPARK Summit took place on October 22, 2010 at Hunter College in New York City.
