The Kopenhaver Center is proud to partner with the Women’s Media Center to highlight the distinguished female speakers featured in Shesource.
The Women’s Media Center SheSource is an online database of media-experienced women experts who are connected to journalists, bookers and producers looking for sources. The WMC SheSource makes it easier for journalists to include diverse women’s voices across all topics in their news coverage. The problem is that women are underrepresented in media.
