Network of Women in Media, India
The Network of Women in Media, India (NWMI), is an informal, non-hierarchical organization comprising women journalists and others working in or on the media, currently linked to autonomous local collectives of media women in about a dozen places across the country. It is an autonomous body committed to democracy and gender justice within the organization and in society.
The basic aims and objectives of the network, evolved through discussion and debate, are:

The NWMI was born on January 30, 2002 at the end of a three-day national workshop on / for Indian women in journalism held at the India International Centre, New Delhi. Approximately a hundred women journalists participated in the workshop, including approximately 60 from 16 places in 14 states.
