The mission of The Women's Media Center is to make women visible and powerful in the media. The WMC works to ensure that women's stories are told, women's voices are heard, and the entire world of news, entertainment, and communications is represented—not just half of it.

The WMC launches media advocacy campaigns, monitors media for sexism, creates original content as features and blogs on its website, trains women and girls in media skills, and promotes media-experienced women experts. The non-profit organization directly engages with media at all levels to ensure that a diverse group of progressive women is present in newsrooms, on air, in print and online, in film, entertainment, and theater, both as sources and subjects.

The Women's Media Center was founded in 2005 by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem.
