Involving Indigenous Women in Community Radio Management and Programming

By  on June 25, 2014

Mexico

Indigenous community radio stations in Oaxaca survive in a context of marginalization, discrimination and aggression. They operate lacking resources, with limited knowledge of legislation, managing equipment and producing programmes, which become almost insurmountable obstacles for women. Although the radio stations exercise their right to freedom of expression, they have also been accused of “stealing” the radio spectrum.

This project strengthened the work of the radio stations and increased their visibility, presence and participation at decision-making levels. It organized workshops on legislation and management training for 40 indigenous women and men in five districts; produced short bilingual radio programmes on women’s and indigenous people’s right to communication; and elaborated a manual on radio station management.
