About WomensCalendar — History
The WomensCalendar history goes as far back as two decades, as a small event listing service under its parent, Women’s Online Media and Education Network (W.O.M.E.N.) and part of WomensRadio. Each year listings grew … albeit slowly at first. The team manually added each listing. No big deal … until … the decision to bring the Calendar out of the shadows and into the limelight was made in February 2002. It launched as National WomensCalendar, covering events primarily in the US and Canada, but grew to also feature International events as well.
It was the hope that the Calendar would grow slowly and deliberately. (Ha! Imagine the Hoover Dam breaking…) In the first month, the listing of events doubled. The pop-eyed Team could barely keep up with the listings. The amount of events quadrupled in the subsequent quarter and the Team was camping out at the computer network till the early morning hours.
Shortly after, the first iteration of technological wizardry maintained the Calendar listings on autopilot. Over 3,000 events had been posted, making WomensCalendar one of the most popular sites for listing events for women worldwide. (Some say we are the biggest, and we don’t mind taking their word on this. However, our goal has always been to provide quality service, despite how large the site grows.)
WomensCalendar has always taken an earnest grassroots approach to service. Our Team has fielded over a thousand e-mails a week from women looking for contacts and assistance. Many times a personal phone call was made … personal contact is incredibly rewarding. It cements relationships that can last a lifetime. This sums up the mission and passion of the people at WomensCalendar.
We get asked frequently about the types of events we publish and whether we have a particular bias as to what events get posted or mentioned.
In response, we have always been elated to share that WomensCalendar is a diverse journal of events and resources for women of all walks of life … liberal, conservative, fundamental and libertarian. Though we have editorial jurisdiction, we do not interfere with the posting of events by women seeking community.
In the past, WomensCalendar also housed the renowned SpeakerSpot Service. The SpeakerSpot had provided opportunities to meet and schedule men and women speakers for lectures, keynotes, seminars, trainings and workshops.
The Calendar Team practices journalism with the First Amendment as the basis for this publication. Women are welcome to make known their points of view about the events that are posted by contacting us and giving feedback; or, better yet, by contacting the event sponsors.
WomensCalendar strives for balance and, yet, it sparks thought. When it comes to certain values, women are amazingly unified on many levels. More importantly, find that many women are up to the task of changing things.
There has always been treasure inside WomensCalendar. The details provide connections to hundreds of women’s organizations and other excellent resources to help readers grow their businesses, build awareness of social issues and fuel active involvement in local and worldwide communities.
