About the WorldWoman Discuss Forum

greenspun.com : LUSENET : WorldWoman Discuss : Policy
The Worldwoman News Nursery is a unique piece of news gathering. We start off with a lead, a piece of information, a snippet of news. We ask you to tell us if it really happened...what happened next...who was involved - we ask you to make news! Journalists have always been limited by the scope of their contacts - this is an interactive, open, and inclusive way of harnessing the vast breadth of contacts and knowledge women possess. When we have enough responses to one nursery story we'll take it down, give it to a qualified journalist and sort the e-fact from the e-fiction! If you'd like to see the nursery stories we've posted - click on the ask question button. Then reply - if you have something factual to tell us bear in mind that it will be read by everyone. If you'd prefer to tell us something in complete confidence email worldwoman@hotmail.net If you've a new nursery story to post - click the new question button. Go on - let's make news!
