Women Make News

by Shari Graydon

Amy Willard Cross, a former editor at Chatelaine magazine, runs a collaborative blog called “Women Make News” which is designed to “encourage more women to engage in the public debate” – the same goal as Informed Opinions itself. She provides an online forum that showcases editorials, opinion pieces, articles and first person journalism by women and about women.

It’s a great idea, and deserves more profile and support.

One recent post, by Cynthia Dunsford, an MLA from PEI, makes a persuasive case for retaining the long form Canadian Census as a critical tool for measuring women’s unpaid work.
