Read these features to get an idea of what Women's Feature Service articles are like. WFS features don't merely report news: They examine the context - why and how events take place; the people, their social milieu and the developments that affect them. WFS holds up a magnifying glass to focus on small but significant symptoms of social change. Whether it is going behind the news or providing a micro-level understanding or standing back and taking a wide-angle view, WFS features give a fresh perspective to readers.
