We Are a Webby Honoree!


Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine that RH Reality Check would stand in the company of political blogs from The New York Times, CNBC, The New Yorker, and CBS News.

Yet here we are – selected out of thousands of entries yesterday as an “Official Honoree” in the political blog category (alongside the media outlets above) for the prestigious 12th Annual Webby Awards! We also congratulate our co-honorees.

Out of more than the 10,000 entries submitted from over 60 countries and 50 states, fewer than 15% received this honor and were deemed an Official Honoree.
This is a tremendous honor and we’re thrilled to share it with you, our readers!

For us, the honor is particularly significant, as it distinguishes the high caliber writing of all of our contributors including our staff and freelance writers from around the world and our Leading Voices – respected leaders who write for us from the many and varied advocacy organizations in this country and around the world. These agencies include Advocates For Youth, SIECUS, The Guttmacher Institute, the International Women’s Health Coalition, PAI, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Choice USA, NARAL Pro-Choice America and more.

But the recognition is also meaningful because, as you can see from the list of co-honorees, RH Reality Check is the only media outlet that focuses solely on covering global reproductive and sexual health news and information.

We are honored to bring these issues into the broader political discourse and of course will continue to do so with your support and loyal readership.

Thank you for reading RH Reality Check and being a part of our community. We couldn’t do it without you!

    The recognition is very well deserved. As I and others have pointed out, in the (relatively) short time that RHRC has existed, it has become *the* go-to source for reproductive health policy assessment.

    Keep up the good work.
