Extra, Extra!

This week a new independent women’s magazine will hit the stands. The publication is not particularly about women, but written by women about various global issues, concentrating on solution-based commentary rather than the typical focus on crises and war.
World Pulse features women journalists from around the world, and includes articles on a range of issues, such as human trafficking, the drug war, and perspectives on the recent U.S. elections. The magazine was created by Executive Editor Jensine Larsen, whose inspiration stemmed from working as a freelance journalist on ethnic cleansing in Burma and indigenous movements in South America. The experience made her realize that there was a substantial lack of solutions-focused news as well as women’s voices in media coverage on global issues, and decided to do something about it.
It looks like this is going to be a great project. Look out for newsstands!
