THE WIP® Internet News Service

Based in Monterey, California, The Women's International Perspective (The WIP) is the global source for women’s perspectives. The WIP reports news, world opinion, and commentary through our Feature Articles, Byline Portal, Current Headlines, and community blog. Our mission is to provide quality articles from the unique perspectives of women, accessible worldwide, and free to readers.

The WIP is a publication of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, a graduate school of Middlebury College.

The WIP is a publication of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS), a graduate school of Middlebury College.

In 2014 The WIP became a publication of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, a graduate school of Middlebury College. The goal of this partnership is for The WIP to continue to sustain itself as voice for women by becoming the “go to” place for women from around the world to publish articles about critical policy issues from women’s perspectives, while providing a platform for MIIS students, faculty, and alumni.

The WIP is a balanced media source that promotes diversity. We are not associated with any religious, political, or cultural affiliation. As a worldwide collective of writers, The WIP is an opportunity to balance the tremendous under-representation of women journalists and offer a greater diversity of background and opinion than typically found in mainstream publications. The WIP strives to bring together divergent cultures, opinions, and ideas in solution-based dialog.

The WIP recognizes our global interconnectedness. Our feature articles offer a more humanistic and contextual view than traditional news stories. They are concerned with the human cost of global policy and the impact of events as they unfold.

The WIP honors underrepresented voices – we honor women, we honor the indigenous, we honor the poor. We honor the personal and the invisible – the stories that don’t get press. The WIP honors the freedom that is the gift that comes with the open exchange of ideas, analysis, and opinion.

The WIP editing team recognizes our global inter-connectedness - how local events have global impact while global events have local significance. We strive to publish relevant and engaging world news, opinion and commentary written by women for everyone.
