We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.

The 11-year-old who galvanised a global movement at the March for Our Lives

By  Chitra Ramaswamy in The Guardian

We are living in a dizzying culture of powerful individual moments, as well as wider movements. The most compelling moment at March for Our Lives – the biggest gun-control protest in a generation – was thanks to an 11-year-old girl from Virginia called Naomi Wadler. In just three minutes and 30 seconds, a child born under George W Bush’s presidency managed to galvanise a global movement, and quote Toni Morrison to boot.

WOMEN’S MEDIA CENTER: YES Inclusion Riders!

Frances McDormand won the Academy Award for Best Actress and won our hearts when she asked all the female nominees to stand with her and told the Hollywood executives and power brokers to, “Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed.  Don’t talk to us about it at the parties tonight – invite us into your office in a couple days, or you can come to ours – whichever suits you best – and we’ll tell you all about them … I have two words to leave you with tonight, ladies and gentlemen:  inclusion rider.” 


MOUNTAIN TRUE – Action, Issues & Advocacy

The NC Department of Environmental Quality has extended the deadline for public feedback about North Carolina’s coal combustion residuals (CCR) rules from March 22 to April 6. The DEQ has indicated that they plan to enact their own state CCR rules in addition to the federal rules, which are at risk of being weakened by current EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. If the federal rules are weakened, we need to make sure the state CCR rules can step in to help defend our waters and our communities.

This Parkland student quickly amassed more Twitter followers than the NRA. Here’s what she’s been writing.

Valerie Strauss at the Washington Post

@Emma4Change is high school senior Emma González, 18, who has quickly become a national figure since she became a vocal proponent of gun control after surviving the Feb. 14 killings of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

She joined Twitter this month and already has 1.15 million followers. The National Rifle Association, which she opposes and which has long opposed gun-control measures,  joined the social media platform in February 2009. It has 606,000 Twitter followers.  Continue reading
