About Women's Institute for Freedom of the Press, The

The Women's Institute for Freedom of the Press (WIFP) was founded in 1972 by Dr. Donna Allen as a nonprofit research, education and publishing organization operated by a completely voluntary, unpaid staff. It advocates freedom of the press through democratizing media communications. WIFP also publishes the annual Directory of Women's Media, as well as an annual print newsletter and a monthly online newsletter, both titled Voices for Media Democracy.

Interns work as part-time assistants focusing on various independent projects, which may include writing and editing articles for the newsletters and publications, working on the website, and/or representing WIFP at meetings, press briefings and other events with other organizations.
