Rural womens radio

Rural womens radio

As part of a three-part project initiated by FAHAMU Networks for Social Justice and in collaboration with local partners, CMFD worked with rural women in Southern, East and West Africa to produce radio/ podcast programmes about women's rights, especially related to rural women. Each of the workshops was conducted in a participatory way, with the participants, who were mostly women from rural communities, identifying issues and priorities, as well as conducting interviews and producing on-site radio programmes that could be distributed to radio stations, community groups, and distributed through Pamazuka podcasts. In each of the three countries – South Africa, Kenya and Sierra Leone – women came together to participate in an 8 day workshop. Together they produced radio programming in issues as diverse as women’s inheritance rights, HIV/ AIDS, early marriage, elections, and access to health care.
