Exciting news! The folks at Women, Action, and the Media (WAM!) launched a campaign today to build a grassroots direct-action network dedicated to creating gender justice in media at all levels, including ownership, employment, representation, and access. And they want to do it using movie nights, pitch-ins, social media, letter writing, and anything else we can think of to spread the word. Fun AND necessary—an excellent combo!
To the rescue!

From the campaign site:
When you back this project, you're creating a network that will connect you with people around the country and the world who share your concern about the state of our media. You'll join activists, media professionals, artists, performers, academics, and people from all walks of life in taking action to create the media ecosystem we deserve.
As a proud WAM! supporter, I can tell you that this is an organization worth backing, full of smart, hardworking, organized people. We could all benefit from an activist hub online dedicated solely to gender justice in media, but WAM! can't do it without our help! Learn more about the project at the indiegogo page and pitch in today!
