What is JAWS?

JAWS is a network of female journalists who seek to empower and support women in journalism and work toward a more accurate portrayal of the whole society. We are a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization.

What does JAWS offer that sets it apart from other organizations that focus on women in communications?

JAWS offers a level of professional networking, support and individual mentoring that our members say doesn’t exist elsewhere. One of our members described it this way: JAWS offers a network “unreplicated in any other journalism organization.”

Do you need to be a woman to join?
