About SHE Media:
The Power of Personal Storytelling
SHE Media (formerly SheKnows Media) is a mission-driven digital media company created by and for women with approximately 60 million unique visitors per month (comScore) and more than 350 million social media fans and followers across the SHE Media Partner Network.
We believe women’s collective voices hold boundless power to bridge cultural divides and our leadership can be a unifying force for global good.
Through our flagship lifestyle sites (SheKnows.com, STYLECASTER, #BlogHer and Soaps.com) and key programs (#Femvertising, Hatch, The Pitch, Voices of the Year and more), we commit to galvanizing a community of premium content creators across food, family, beauty, entertainment and women’s health. Together with our partners, we are building a curated network that celebrates and amplifies empathy, inspiration and human connection.
Our vision is to help lay the foundation for a scalable, sustainable economic model for women entrepreneurs and small businesses. We do this through four key ad products:
- 1. Digital Media (display & programmatic)
- 2. Branded Content (flat, slideshow & video)
- 3. Social Media Influencer Campaigns
- 4. Live Events and E-Learning
The SHE Media “Loop” icon symbolizes a new media model. It is formed from one continuous line, representing the feedback loop that emerges from our diverse community as its members discover, create and share the messy, beautiful, real and joyful moments that comprise their lives.
In short, we celebrate all women who endeavor to live life by their own definitions.

Creating the Good Web

Based on a term we coined in 2014, SHE Media created the #Femvertising Awards the following year to celebrate ads that challenge social and gender norms through advertising.

Since 2015, more than 350 brands and agencies of all sizes and across all industries have submitted their work for consideration, and nearly 40,000 votes have been cast in favor of the best ads. The awards program and its winners and nominees have been featured in a wide range of publications and news outlets, including NBC Nightly News, Adweek, Fortune, CNN, Brandchannel, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, and more.
