It seems that the cameras are coming to Washington from all sorts of directions. A WashingtonWoman is pleased that others are starting to recognize the wealth of interesting topics, places, and people located in and around the beltway.
At the same time we are holding our breath to see just how we here in the nation's capital are about to be portrayed. Certainly there will be some artistic liberties taken, and we know that. Still we are planning to create a platform where the real women of D.C. will comment and contribute to what we are witnessing.
So be you government employee, intern, retired grandmothers, single moms, double moms (thats me trying to be creative -- get it single/double --twice the work cause that's how we roll)...I digress... no matter what your station is around the nation's capital we are looking forward to your input.
Helping To Put Things In Context: Something You Should Know About D.C.
Everyone knows Washington, D.C. for being the nation's capital where decisions are made that affect the country itself and impacts the world at large. But between the time that politicians and special interest groups like to use the city as the reason for all that ails America, it has a more intimate side. This is the side that one could think of as the "local" aspect of the city. I think if people understood what really exists within the boundaries of this diamond shaped (minus a complete side) metropolis, their perspectives may be altered considerably. As AWashingtonWoman will continue to focus on some of the wonderful women who make up the fabric of the DMV (a term used for the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and includes: the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia), we will also strive to give you a little of the backstory, as objectively as we can. So it's been a year since this all began and without really trying, this blog has exceeded what our expectations were. So we are thinking that with a little love and a lot of integrity, we can share some real true insight which can be entertaining as well as informative. Who knows?.... Maybe it will even be ..... helpful.
