The International Women’s Tribune Centre (IWTC) has produced a series of radio programs highlighting the impact of violent conflict on women, as well as women’s contributions to conflict resolution and sustainable peace. The radio productions include features, dramas, and short announcements to communicate information about the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, on women, peace, and security.
Longer programs about women and conflict focus on the following countries:
-Uganda, in English, Swahili, and Luganda languages;
-Liberia, in English, Kpelle, and Bassa languages.
Shorter spots on the UN resolution were produced in the following countries:
-Kenya, in English, Swahili, and French languages;
-South Africa, in English, Portuguese, and Oromo languages.
The IWTC plans to launch two new Women Talk Peace programs on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2008. They will include a radio soap opera on the issue of sexual and gender-based violence, produced in Uganda, and programs that address issues confronted by women and men rebuilding Sierra Leone, such as post-conflict violence.
