Global Women Media is an independent news agency founded by the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies.
This is an officially registered media and a news agency providing other media with articles. Since 2017, the news agency was known as the Eurasian Women’s Community. In early 2020, the news agency was renamed into the Global Women Media.
During 4 years of its work, the website won considerable international authority for bridging together women leaders from different countries. The new name of the website adopted in March 2020 is designed to reflect a new concept of a global media for women who improve the world actively.
Exclusive rights to materials published on the Global Women Media website belong to the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies (IGUMO&IT) autonomous non-profit organization for higher education.

- Women community news;
- Women and science;
- Women and business;
- Women and charity;
- Women and culture;
- Active long-living;

The idea to create this web-portal appeared at the First Eurasian Women’s Forum. It became obvious that Russia and other countries have a number of amazing social projects that are unfortunately not often interesting to traditional media. Over 4 years of its work, the website published upwards of 2500 original publications in Russian and English. In 2021, the website traffic was more than a million people from 183 countries. 38% of the users are from Russia, 11% – from Europe, 17% – from Asia, 19% – from the USA. It is important for us to demonstrate the positive image of a woman to the whole world.
The news agency receives words of support and appreciation of its editorial policy from all over the word. Marina Volynkina, Head of Global Women Media, received letters of gratitude signed by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, Chairperson of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko, and women leaders from many countries.
Marina Volynkina, PhD in Law, is the Rector of the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies (the IGUMO), founder of the International College for Arts and Communication (MKIK), Head of the Global Talents (globaltalents.ru) all-Russian web-portal of supplementary education, founder and Head of the Global Women Media news agency, co-founder of the Peace 50 community.
“The world needs the new culture of thinking and acting, which cannot be achieved without information ecology. Mass media largely shape the minds, relations, and actions of modern people. Media should not just objectively reflect the reality, but also demonstrate ideas and initiatives aimed at sustainable development. That is why socially responsible, positive, and motivating media are so important today”.
Global Women Media Initiative
At the Second Eurasian Women’s Forum, the Global Women Media news agency’s team initiated an open debate titled ‘The Role of the Media in Shaping the Modern Image of Women’s Leadership: Information for Peace and Sustainable Development’. The discussion identified the relevance of socially responsible media worldwide, which resulted in the initiative to create the Memorandum ‘Responsible Media for the Global Peace and Sustainable Development’.
Our motto is ‘Building connections one heart at a time’.
We invite all organisations working on positive transformations in different fields of activity to become our information partners and sign the Memorandum.
