More about WPOW:

Women Photojournalists of Washington (WPOW) is a non-profit organization of 175 women working within or studying the field of photojournalism in the Washington DC metropolitan area.

While still in the minority, women are a quickly growing segment within the historically male dominated field of photojournalism. WPOW seeks to both address the specific needs of Washington DC area female photojournalists by nurturing professional growth, and to educate the public about the role of women in this field.
