Women's Media Center Live with Robin Morgan is a nationally syndicated American radio show with an international audience in 110 countries around the globe. The weekly show is hosted by Robin Morgan, the award-winning author of over 20 books, political analyst, former editor in chief of Ms. Magazine, and, in 2005, co-founder (with Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem) of The Women's Media Center.

Praised as "talk radio with a brain" by The Huffington Post, the show has enjoyed exponential ratings growth, not only because of its world-class host, but because of its world-class guests.

The founding sponsor of WMC Live is The Artemis Rising Foundation (Regina K. Scully, Founder and CEO).


An award-winning poet, novelist, political theorist, feminist activist, journalist, editor, and best-selling author, Robin Morgan has published more than 20 books, including the now-classic anthologies Sisterhood Is Powerful, Sisterhood Is Global, and Sisterhood Is Forever: The Women's Anthology for A New Millennium. Recent books include: A Hot January: Poems 1996-1999; Saturday's Child: A Memoir; her best-selling The Demon Lover: The Roots of Terrorism; her new historical novel, The Burning Time; and her latest nonfiction work, Fighting Words: A Tool Kit for Combating the Religious Right.

A recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Prize (Poetry) and numerous other honors, and a former Editor-in-Chief of Ms. magazine, she founded The Sisterhood Is Global Institute and co-founded The Women's Media Center. An architect and leader of contemporary U.S. feminism, she has also been a leader in the international women's movement for 30 years. She lives in New York City and has just finished a new novel.

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.
