On November 25, the Women’s International Network of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC-WIN) launched an internet campaign as part of the international effort, 16 days of activism against gender violence (November 25-December 10). The theme of this year’s international campaign is “Commit – Act – Demand: We CAN End Violence against Women! ” The AMARC-WIN campaign aims to denounce gender violence in the media and transform media into a catalyst to end violence against women.
Community radio stations from Africa, and around the world, are dedicating these 16 days to programs that highlight the efforts of women and men working to put an end to gender violence. The audio files of some of the participating community radios and production groups are available online at: http://www.amarc.org/index.php?p=16_Days_Against_Violence_on_Women_2009_audios.
All community radio stations are encouraged to get involved in the campaign by re-broadcasting these programs.
