The Next Class of Progressive Women’s Voices

Good news for some great progressive women!

The Women’s Media Center (WMC) is pleased to announce the second class of its Progressive Women’s Voices (PWC) program for 2010. Now in its third y ear, Progressive Women’s Voices is an intense media training and outreach program that involves in-person intensive training, weekly interview practice, and ongoing WMC strategy and support.

In 2010, the WMC will host three Progressive Women’s Voices training classes. Each class will include ten women from around the country trained over two separate weekends in New York City. Travel, accommodation, and training expenses are paid for completely by the WMC.

Progressive Women’s Voices is the premier media and leadership training program serving women in our country. In two years, the Women’s Media Center has intensively trained 60+ women who reflect diversity visibly absent from the mainstream media within important conversations around national security, health care, immigration, workplace policy, reproductive rights, climate change, and other issues that fill the headlines every day.

With training from The Women’s Media Center, PWV experts have been featured in the Washington Post, The New York Times, Elle, New York magazine, USA Today, Forbes, Variety, Mother Jones, the Wall Street Journal, Slate, Salon, The New Republic, the Los Angeles Times; by the Associated Press and Reuters; on Good Morning America, CNN, MSNBC, CBS Nightly News, Fox News, ABC News, CNBC, Bill Moyers, numerous NPR shows; and within hundreds of other top-tier media outlets.
