Calling All NeW Women!  Looking for a way to come to the National Conference in D.C. on June 25?   Here is a great opportunity to help get you there!   

Contest Essay Question: Television shows and movies typically portray women in one of two ways:  the frail victim or the powerfully masculine.  How has being involved with NeW broadened your view of women?  Is there any truth to the way women are portrayed on shows like the Bachelor, Bachelorette, Sex and the City, and Grey’s Anatomy?
