WINGS

WINGS is at different times horrifying, exciting, funny, eye-opening and definitely inspirational. — Nikki Reece, program producer, Plains FM, Christchurch, New Zealand

WINGS: Women’s International News Gathering Service is an all-woman independent radio production company that produces and distributes news and current affairs programs by and about women around the world. WINGS programs are used by non-commercial radio stations, women’s studies, and individuals. Programs can be heard on local radio stations, on shortwave, on the internet, and on cassettes. The WINGS Mailing List provides updates on stories and new information about women’s media. “Though I have been involved in women’s issues for years, I was still struck by the contrast of your broadcast to the news we are usually hearing — news reflecting male interests in a basically male world. Women’s affairs are a hidden current in the flow of world events.”– Kristin Reilly, listener, Buffalo, New YorkWINGS Mailing List:E-mail wings@wings.org to receive periodic e-mail updates about WINGS programs and women’s media issues.

The Vegetarian Myth February 2, 2013 | 2:30 pm

Contrary to popular opinion, a vegetarian diet alone will not save the planet, because patriarchal agriculture is destroying the planet's topsoil at a terrific rate - in fact, we have almost no topsoil left now anywhere in the world. Only inputs from another deplete-able resource - oil- are standing between us and the collapse of our "civilized" food system. Lierre Keith says we have to re-create the space for the natural conditions in which we and other creatures co-evolved - where all creatures including the microbes have a role to play in sustaining each other's lives, and consuming each other as well.
