Amplifying women's voices—especially in conversations where they haven't been heard—is one of our most important goals here at MarieClaire.com. That's why, in February of 2016, we published an ambitious 10-part series about women and guns, exploring female perspectives on all sides of the debate.
We featured a national survey conducted in partnership with Harvard, an essay by Hillary Clinton, an interview with the NRA, a look at the women left behind by gun violence, a mini-documentary about a teenage competitive shooter, and more insight into how women feel about, live with, and die by guns.

A small team of fiercely dedicated female editors spent six months bringing the project to life, and we're so honored to be recognized by the Webby Awards for our labor of love. We can't help but think it's fitting that a series designed to make women heard is nominated for People's Voice, and that it's up to you to decide who wins.
