I have a confession to make, embarrassing as it is. While my intellect may have known better, there have been a few moments in my life when I wanted to be a cover girl with the perfect makeup, hair and wardrobe to die for. Well now that fantasy has come true in the best of ways without having to bother with being airbrushed and squeezed into Barbie attire!
The Women’s Institute for Freedom of the Press (WIFP)’ newest publication, “A Women’s Media Resource” cover features beautiful drawings of Ida B. Wells, Dr. Maurine Beasley, Angela Davis, Frieda Werden, Sunita Viswanath, Gloria Steinem and Andrea Dworkin and yes, that is me in the lower right corner. No doubt about it–this is what beautiful really looks like! I am truly honored and grateful to be included in such amazing company and also for the encouragement, support and friendship of WIFP Director Dr. Martha Allen.
WIFP is an excellent resource and their work is crucial to furthering women’s voices in the media, if you aren’t familiar with their work, please take a minute to check out their website and learn more.
