Women, Action, and the Media

The WAM! Community Action Network (WAM!CAN) is a grassroots direct-action network dedicated to creating gender justice in media at all levels, including ownership, employment, representation and access. It’s a network of people who share your concern about the state of our media, coming together to take action to create the media ecosystem we deserve. Once a month, we put out the WAM! signal and we all take one single, targeted action together. The rest of the time, WAM!CAN helps you talk issues and strategy with others who share your concerns, and promote actions of your own and others that promote gender justice in media.

The other Action Advisory Board members include Emily May, Hollaback! Executive Director and international leader in the anti-street-harassment movement and Aminatou Sow Tech Ladymafia co-founder and digital strategist who runs online marketing campaigns for national non-profits, public affairs groups and Fortune 500 companies. Over the past year, WAM! CAN has lead actions that have forced facebook to become accountable to their own hate speech policies involving violent content towards women.
