Women’s Enews is a globe-spanning nonprofit news service covering issues of particular concern to women and providing women’s perspectives on public policy. Every year the organization honors a small group of individuals and organizations at the forefront of supporting gender equality around the world as part of their “21 Leaders of the 21st Century” International Leadership Award. In 2008 Lorraine Serena was recognized as part of that group for her tireless work creating and expanding Women Beyond Borders from a small room of like-minded women into a movement that reaches out to encompass over 50 countries and countless individuals the world over.
