SIRIUS XM Radio today announced that for the fourth consecutive year it will launch Women’s Conference Radio, a channel created to broadcast in-depth coverage of The Women’s Conference 2009 hosted by California’s First Lady Maria Shriver and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the annual event designed to empower women of all ages and backgrounds to be “Architects of Change” in their lives, within the communities and around the world.

Hosted by Maria Shriver, Women’s Conference Radio will feature key speeches and panels from The Women’s Conference 2009 in their entirety, as well as behind-the-scenes interviews with speakers and attendees. Women’s Conference Radio is a 24-hour channel and will air November 15 beginning at 12:00 am ET on SIRIUS channel 117 and XM channel 163.

The Women’s Conference 2009 featured its signature “once-in-a-lifetime conversations” led by a distinguished roster of more than 100 speakers and participants including former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright, Sir Richard Branson, Katie Couric, Elizabeth Edwards, Senior Advisor to the President Valerie B. Jarrett, Caroline Kennedy, Annie Leibovitz, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Robin Roberts and others.

The Women’s Conference is produced by the non-profit, non-partisan organization, the California Governor and First Lady’s Conference on Women, which was established more than twenty years ago. Under First Lady Shriver and Governor Schwarzenegger’s leadership, the annual event has blossomed into the nation’s premier forum for women.

SIRIUS XM Radio is home to a diverse, powerful and exclusive lineup of programming for women including Oprah Radio, Martha Stewart Living Radio, Cosmo Radio, Rosie O’Donnell’s Rosie Radio and Barbara Walters’ Here’s Barbara. For more information visit www.sirius.com and www.xmradio.com.

To some extent I find this stuff really offensive. The idea that an entire group of people will enjoy the same stuff is crazy.

This PR comes off like women can only enjoy women on the radio. If they did a story about a Jamie Foxx special then in the bottom highlighted every single Black DJ or Host on SIRIUS XM as if to highlight "Look we have stuff for you." It's really not cool.

Women have a variety of interests as do anyone else. The idea that all women or groups think alike is insane. Something about this PR just rubs me the wrong way.

I should clarify since I'm fired up about this. That it's just this line in the PR that bothers me
