Welcome to our new site!
…to the refreshed and re-launched Women’s Views on News (WVoN) site! We’re back after a short break with a new structure, making it easier for you to find articles and blogs on your favourite topic. The refreshed site lets you ‘share’ WVoN posts with friends and followers on different social media platforms. We also have a new RSS newsfeed so you can get your WVoN content delivered directly into your favourite newsreader.
After much discussion, we’ve decided to re-launch as a news and opinion hub with a stronger focus on women, gender issues and feminism in the UK, due to the dearth of media outlets accurately communicating our diverse experiences.
However, we remain committed to featuring voices of across the globe, which is why we’ve launched our ‘International News’ category.
Our new categories are:
- Science and Technology
- International News
We also have new ‘Campaigns’ and ‘From Blogs’ sections which will showcase campaigns and blogs that we want to promote.
If you have a campaign or blog you want us to post that is relevant to women , gender or feminism, please get in touch by emailing:
As ever, we are interested in content that you wouldn’t find in the mainstream media.
Commenter Guidelines: stimulating healthy debate
Love them or hate our articles, we want to hear your views. But we also want to protect our readers and writers from the abuse and personal attacks which are rife on so many forums. Given the controversy and strong opinions a lot of our content can stimulate, we think this is particularly important.
That’s why, with our re-launched site, we’re also launching a set of Commenter Guidelines (under ‘About’ menu).
It’s important to us that whilst WVoN is a platform for healthy, intelligent debate, it bucks the trend of some mainstream discussion forums where hatred and personal attacks against people – especially women – are espoused freely.
