The 2012 Women’s Media Awards
 

Lisa Ling

Laura Ling


 

The Women’s Media Center

announces that

 Lisa Ling and Laura Ling will receive
The Women's Media Center Sisterhood is Powerful Award

At The 2012 Women’s Media Awards

on November 13 in New York City

 

The Women’s Media Center announced this morning that The 2012 Women’s Media Awards will honor journalist Lisa Ling, Host of Our America With Lisa Ling on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, and her sister, journalist Laura Ling, receiving The Women's Media Center Sisterhood is Powerful Award.

It was previously announced that Pat Mitchell, President & CEO of The Paley Center for Media & Founding Co-Chair of The Women's Media Center, will be presented with the WMC’s First Lifetime Achievement Award , thereafter to be named after her, and that Martha Nelson, Editorial Director of Time Inc. will be presented with the Going The Distance Award.

The honorees will be presented with their awards at The 2012 Women’s Media Awards on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at Guastavino’s in New York City with all three Women’s Media Center Co-Founders, Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan & Gloria Steinem in attendance.

The Women’s Media Awards recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to advancing women’s and girls’ visibility and power in media.

“I am extremely honored to be recognized by The Women’s Media Center” says Lisa Ling. “I am particularly honored to receive joint recognition with my sister whose strength and integrity are truly extraordinary.”

“My sister and I are both dedicated to bringing covering the news and the people who are making a difference and that is what drives and motivates us,” adds Laura Ling. “To receive recognition from an organization that promotes and celebrates women in the media is truly meaningful to me.”

 “Laura Ling was detained by North Korea for 140 days after attempting to film a report on trafficking in women along the border in China,” says Robin Morgan, Co-Founder of The Women’s Media Center.  “Laura had risked her life to bring significant news about sexual slavery to the world. Lisa Ling played a major role in marshaling the media to bring attention to her sister’s plight and to help save her. Together and separately, they displayed strength and integrity.”

Laura Ling and her colleague, Euna Lee, were in a hostile foreign country and sentenced to 12 years in a labor prison for illegal entry and ‘hostile acts,’ ” says Gloria Steinem, Co-Founder of The Women’s Media Center. “Lisa worked nationally and internationally to help free her sister and Euna. Laura and Lisa are committed to pursuing the truth as journalists. We salute the courage and mutual support that brought them through, and makes them an inspiration to journalists, to women and to sisterhood of every kind.”

“When I think about Laura and Lisa Ling, the word that comes to mind is: tenacity,” says Jane Fonda, Co-Founder of The Women’s Media Center. “Two amazing, tenacious sisters whose lives and stories are shining examples of truth and perseverance.”

"Lisa Ling and Laura Ling are extraordinarily courageous Asian America women journalists who have consistently, bravely endeavored to report on the real-life challenges that women face around the world, no matter how difficult or dangerous it is to uncover the truth of ALL women’s lives, whether involving mass rapes in the Congo or trafficking of women in North Korea, even at great personal sacrifice,” says Helen Zia, board member of the Women’s Media Center. “They represent sisterhood in action and the very best that journalists everywhere can aspire to."

About Lisa Ling:

Lisa Ling is Host of Our America With Lisa Ling on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. As the field correspondent for The Oprah Winfrey Show and contributor to ABC News' Nightline and National Geographic's Explorer, Lisa Ling has reported from dozens of countries, covering stories about gang rape in the Congo, bride burning in India and the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, among other issues that are too often ignored.

Lisa got her start in journalism as a correspondent for Channel One News where she covered the civil war in Afghanistan at 21 years of age.  She later went on to become a co-host of ABC Daytime's hit show The View, which won its first daytime Emmy during her time at the show.

Lisa was a special correspondent for CNN's Planet in Peril series and is a contributing editor for USA Today's USA Weekend magazine. She is the co-author of Mother, Daughter, Sister, Bride: Rituals of Womanhood and Somewhere Inside: One Sister's Captivity in North Korea and the Other's Fight to Bring Her Home, which she penned with her sister, Laura.  She also serves on the Board of Directors for the California Museum.

About Laura Ling:

Journalist Laura Ling was born in Carmichael, California. Ling went to Del Campo High School where she was a writer for the school newspaper. She went on to become an investigative journalist, and currently works for Current TV.

In June 2009, Ling, along with journalist Euna Lee, was convicted by the North Korean government for illegal entry and committing "hostile acts" against the country. Ling and Lee were each was sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for their alleged crimes. Ling stated that she never intended to cross into North Korea. She also revealed that she requires medical treatment for an ulcer from which she regularly suffers.

Political experts believed the actions were in response to the United States' opposition of North Korea's recent efforts at nuclear testing. On August 5, 2009, former president Bill Clinton engaged in diplomatic talks with North Korea in an effort to secure Ling and Lee's releases. He returned to the U.S. with the two women later that day.


The 2012 Women’s Media Awards are co-chaired by Loreen Arbus, Donna Deitch, Jodie Evans, Jane Fonda, Carol Jenkins, Robin Morgan & Gloria Steinem.

About The Women’s Media Center:

The Women's Media Center works to make women and girls visible and powerful in the media through strategic programs aimed at transforming the media landscape including media training, media monitoring and activism, original media content, media reports, media programs & initiatives. 

The Women’s Media Center was founded in 2005 by Jane Fonda,
 Robin Morgan,
and Gloria Steinem.

 “The Women’s Media Center exists to change the status of women in media.  Because 51 percent of our population is women and only 3 percent of all clout positions in media are held by women, the Women’s Media Center Awards were created to honor champions for women who use their media platforms to tell the stories, facts, and solutions crucial to all viewers and to advance opportunities for women in media,” says Julie Burton, President of the Women’s Media Center. “Because media tells our stories and influences the role of women in every part of society, we are proud to honor these amazing women who set the standard for what media should look like when it gives voice to the female half of the country.”
