Another connection

I can't recall if I sent you this but the founder of a UK-based online women's news service called is looking for writers who can help them with the site, either by writing up news stories about women; or by looking through stories that have been picked up and published by other news outlets that are about women and alerting them so that they can post them onto their site. You would be perfect for this. Let me know if it works out for you. Best wishes,
