Behind the Movement! Womyn on the Frontlines Speak! Featured stories…
During this economic crisis wom(y)n of color executive directors are having to make choice about their love and commitment to their organizations, movements or social justice issues they are working on and their self sustainability not only their own but those of their staff and all of the community that sustain from the organization. I have been in conversation with wom(y)n on the front lines who are making tough choices, closing down or creating different strategies to take their love for the movement to the next level and create alternative systems of sustainability and self care in the process.
As a result I have become a citizen journalist reporting on Gender Justice through my Behind the Movement Newsletter, bringing you a social justice series featuring intimate interviews and a look at the careers of womyn on the front lines, their journey of self healing and leadership. Through the newsletter I will bring you the personal stories of the most committed womyn in social justice movements in New York City. You will get a front row seat to their internal personal and organizational process as they bring the movement within and tackle the hardest issues and the impact they have on their mind, body and spirit. They will talk about why they integrate spirituality and healing into their mission and the lives of the people they work with.
Below you will find a series of features on different wom(y)n as they share their personal lives, the organization they work with and the movement behind social justice that is in IN BOLD REBIRTH!
Women’s eNews and the Global Press Institute partnered on a pilot gender justice reporting and technology training class to strengthen connections between local and the global communities bringing issues effecting women’s participation in society to the forefront of reporting.
