Jane Fonda will be among the attendees of the Women’s Media Center’s 2011 Awards Ceremony on November 30.
Hosted by Wanda Sykes, the event will honor CNN Anchor & Special Correspondent Soledad O'Brien; CBS News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent & 60 Minutes Correspondent Lara Logan; Chairman & CEO of Frontier Communications Maggie Wilderotter and Yanique Richards of The Howard University Association of Black Journalists. The 2011 Women’s Media Center Social Media Award honoree will also be announced at the event – 27 distinguished journalists, bloggers, and tweeters are award nominees.
The Women’s Media Center was founded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem to make women and girls visible and powerful in the media. This is accomplished by promoting women as subjects and decision-makers within the media, training women and girls so they are media-ready and media–savvy, monitoring and exposing sexism in the media, and creating innovative new media and original content. The Women’s Media Center is directly engaged with the media at all levels to ensure that a diverse group of women are present in the newsrooms, on air, in print and online, as sources and subjects.
