WINGS: Women's International News Gathering Service
"Raising Women's Voices Through Radio Worldwide"

What WINGS Is . . .

"WINGS is at different times horrifying, exciting, funny, eye-opening and
definitely inspirational." --Nikki Reece, programme producer, Plains FM,
Christchurch, New Zealand

WINGS: Women's International News Gathering Service is an all-woman
independent radio production company that produces and distributes news
and current affairs programs by and about women around the world. WINGS
programs are used by non-commercial radio stations, women's studies, and
individuals. Programs can be heard on local radio stations, on shortwave,
on the internet, and on cassettes. The WINGS Mailing List provides updates
on stories and new information about women's media.

"Though I have been involved in women's issues for years, I was still
struck by the contrast of your broadcast to the news we are usually
hearing -- news reflecting male interests in a basically male world.
Women's affairs are a hidden current in the flow of world events."--
Kristin Reilly, listener, Buffalo, New York
