Tucson, AZ, September 16, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- This month’s virtual airwaves will carry the message of women that are on the verge.
They may be on the verge of motherhood. On the verge of becoming a grandmother. On the verge of starting a new job. On the verge of overcoming depression.
The Women on the Verge online radio show airs live once a month from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern time, and is scheduled next for September 21st on the web site www.womenontheverge.net. Given that this month is the two-year anniversary of Women on the Verge (WOTV), panelists will discuss how they themselves are on the verge.
WOTV encompasses a lot more than the radio show. It is an online community of women all around the world, that talk and support each other by discussing anything woman-related through social media.
Its blogs garner around 1,000,000 hits per month and landed the online community in the pages of Marie Claire magazine. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube among other media, amass the group an additional 10,000 followers. However, women do not have to partake in the social media discussions to tune into the free radio show.
“This is the place where stereotypes are broken and we are empowered by it. Where our success is celebrated and our pain gets a hug,” says founder and member Ana Lewis. “Our shows are lively and healing. Women from every continent except Antarctica have sought out this sisterhood without borders.”
Lewis will host the show of panelists that include author and psychologist, Dr. Karen Monroy, PhD; business-woman and journalist, Dawn Rivers Baker; activist and political blogger, Jessica Pieklo; songwriter and photographer, Robbie Kaye; and writer and avid runner Jennifer Lynn Erickson.
Lewis named the community WOTV because she’s always felt like she’s growing, learning, curious —or on the verge. “Plus, the term always made me smile,” she says, adding their methods have always been a bit tongue-in-cheek.
Women on the Verge was founded in September 2009 by Lewis in Tucson, Arizona. Lewis previously belonged to an online community for work at home moms where she found valuable support on how to balance work and family life. However the site didn’t provide information about who she was interacting with. So Lewis started Women on the Verge, featuring profiles, or online directories of all participants. WOTV now incorporates all sorts of social media, and continues to grow its members and audience.
