35 for 35: JAWS has big plans. You can help us succeed
Help us raise $35,000 for JAWS' 35 year anniversary.
Do you love JAWS — and our mission of supporting women in journalism while helping to work toward a more accurate portrayal of the whole society? Help us ensure JAWS is around for another 35 years — by raising $35,000 for our 35th anniversary.
Whatever you can give helps us show funders that our members care — whether that's 5, $35, $350, $3500, or any amount you can afford. Our 35 for 35 campaign runs between now and September 2021. But from now until the end of 2020, up to $300 of your donation is tax-deductible.
What's more, a member will match all donations up to $3500!

The Journalism and Women Symposium (JAWS) supports and promotes female, trans and non-binary journalists who identify as women, while helping our profession more accurately portray the whole society.
That’s a serious challenge.
Women were underrepresented in U.S. newsrooms even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Now women are suffering higher unemployment than men during this crisis – and the numbers are even worse for women of color.
If we want to fix this, we need to band together.
“The Status of Women in the U.S. Media 2019” from Women's Media Center shows that despite some gains, men still dominate in every part of news, entertainment and digital media.
