We are excited to share our plans for the future of women and girls’ coverage at News Deeply.
In January 2018, our Women & Girls page will close as we launch the first of a new set of dedicated platforms
that will allow us to dive deeper into the biggest issues affecting women and girls in the developing world.
This first platform – Women’s Advancement Deeply – will cover the pursuit of economic equality for women,
from securing gender-equal access to financial services, to fighting for property rights and closing the pay gap.
We’ll also be working to launch other dedicated platforms in this space, and we are currently exploring themes
of maternal, sexual and reproductive health, as well as gender-based violence. If these topics are of interest
to you, please let us know here – we would love your input as we shape new initiatives.
Our trove of existing Women & Girls coverage will remain available through an archived version of the site,
allowing you to explore and reference our published articles dating back to May 2016
Thank you for being part of the Women & Girls community. We look forward to having you join us in our new
endeavors in this space.
