I am the founder and editor in chief of Women's eNews, a daily, nonprofit news site, launched in 2000 to cover issues of particular concern to women. To date, Women's eNews has won 40 awards, including the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. A former senior writer for the National Law Journal and columnist for The New York Times Syndicate, I have more than 30 years of experience in journalism and an armload of awards, including the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism Alumni award, the Alicia Patterson fellowship, and the Lloyd P. Burns Public Service prize. I am also a survivor of domestic violence and a former welfare mother who earned degrees from Ohio State University and Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.
