The Women’s Media Center, a non-profit progressive women’s media organization that works to make women visible and powerful in the media, recently announced the nominees for its Social Media Award, which celebrates new media makers for gender justice. ELIXHER creator Kimberley McLeod is among this year’s nominees.
“I am honored and humbled to be nominated for this year’s Social Media Award with so many incredible media makers and warrior women,” says McLeod.
Since its launch in March 2011, ELIXHER has grown immensely thanks to its dedicated team of contributors, interns and loyal readers.
Public voting for the award is open and will continue until October 29. The winner will be honored at the Women’s Media Awards on November 13 in New York City. The Women’s Media Awards recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to advancing women’s and girls’ visibility and power in media.
“This is The Women’s Media Center’s one de facto ‘people’s choice’ award, since the winner is chosen by voting online at the WMC website,” said Robin Morgan, co-founder of The Women’s Media Center, in a press release. “These young nominees, previously silenced or ignored in traditional media, have forged their own path to reaching wide audiences and affecting many lives. I love this award, because, frankly, it honors the future of media.”
