South African Women Are Reclaiming Their Voices in the Media

Quote This Woman+ (QW+) is a database of women experts – as well as other people systematically ignored or misconstrued by mainstream media narratives. QW+ provides an easy way for journalists and news producers to find a vetted expert to speak with. Founders relied on referrals to build the database, with each newly added expert asked to refer at least five other experts in the field. The platform launched right before South Africa’s 2019 election with 40 experts in 25 categories and now has 513 experts across 49 categories and a newsletter subscription list of about a thousand journalists.
