Women must much more participate in the media both as content producers as
well as active consumers, says UNESCO on the occasion of the annual Women
Make the News initiative celebrated every year at International Women’s Day (8 March). The theme for this year’s Women Make the News campaign- “Rural women’s access to media and information” – seeks to underscore and stimulate knowledge exchange on good practices in this area as undertaken by public service broadcasters, commercial and community media and NGOs working to improve rural women’s access to media and information. “In Nepal, media has a crucial role in creating economic empowerment and political participation for rural women”, says Axel Plathe, Head of the UNESCO Office in Kathmandu. Radio Nari Aawaaj in Jumla, Mid-Western Nepal, is an example of the power of gender inclusive media in rural areas. The radio station, established with support from UNESCO’s International Programme for Development of Communication(IPDC), is one of the first community radio stations in Nepal run entirely by women, for women.
