She Writes

PS has always been committed to amplifying the voices of the world’s leading thinkers – including the women, who all too often struggle to be heard. Now, we are offering a monthly newsletter dedicated to such women: She Writes.

Each issue highlights women whose ideas deserve wider attention, offers a curated selection of our most incisive women-authored commentaries from the previous month, and presents our latest woman-focused multimedia offerings. She Writes is thus an ideal resource for anyone seeking to discover new and noteworthy ideas – and the women who have them.

She Writes is brought to you in part by the Open Society Initiate for Europe
