Weekend Writing Opportunity: The Op-Ed Project

“The Op-Ed Project is an initiative to target and train women experts across the nation to project their voices on the op-ed pages of major newspapers and other key forums of public discourse, which are currently overwhelmingly dominated by male voices. This is a media democracy project, designed to promote diversity on the op-ed pages and beyond. The premise of this project is not “women’s affirmative action” – in fact, it is not a “women” project at all: It’s an everyone project. The lack of diversity on the op-ed pages deprives the public of robust, democratic debate, especially important in this space, which is intended to showcase divergent opinions. See more information and testimonials, sign up for upcoming Op-Ed classes through the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership, or contact Catherine Orenstein to schedule a seminar for your organization.”
