For Immediate Release
WJHC COMICS SELECTED FOR
For the second year in a row Wilson Place comic book, WJHC, has been chosen by the Ms. Foundation to be part of the merchandise line for Take Our Daughters To Work® Day.
The Ms. Foundation program focuses the nation's attention on keeping girls healthy and strong through adolescence, as workplaces invite girls to explore their hopes, dreams, and futures. Millions of girls will accompany a parent to work on April 25, to participate in the tenth annual Take Our Daughters To Work® Day. WJHC comics will be part of a complimentary gift package distributed to the girls by participating corporations.
"WJHC was chosen as part of the Take Our Daughters To Work® Day merchandise line because it offers girls, and boys, comics which are appropriately aimed at youth without using sex, violence or superheroes," says Carolyn McKecuen of Ms. Foundation's Corporate Contributions and Sponsorships.
WJHC chronicles the misadventures of an unlikely group of kids starting a high school radio station. The comics are geared to 8 to 12 year olds.
"It's a thrill for me to have WJHC as part of Take Our Daughters To Work® Day," says WJHC creator Jane Smith Fisher. A single mom who's been writing for children for more than a decade, she adds "It's great to be recognized for my effort to buck the trend of sex and violence in children's mass media."
The first two issues of WJHC are available in stores and at WJHC.com.
