Radio’s Rural Reach

August 4, 2015

Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women program partner FemLINKPACIFIC is a feminist community media organisation based in Fiji. FemLINKPACIFIC utilses media, and particularly radio, to update listeners on crucial information and initiate dialogue relating to women’s life and reality.

Community Media Officer, Sulueti Waqa, reflects on the power of community radio in reaching rural areas and connecting with policy makers:

“National policies affect everyone. Women from the urban to the rural areas. Sometimes rural women do not know the power of their voice and this is where community radio comes in to be the link between the women and the policymakers.”
