Women’s Media Center recognizes inspirational game changers
By Julie Zeilinger
Over the past year, many intrepid women have leveraged the media not only to make their voices heard, and to offer more diverse voices in an industry that has historically been dominated by limited perspectives, but also to further leverage the industry’s power for creating change.
Last night, the Women’s Media Center honored women who have done just that at the 2018 WMC Women’s Media Awards at Capitale in New York City. From journalists, a congresswoman, to high-ranking businesswomen, this year’s honorees inspired the audience with their work as well as their compelling words.

“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
