PROVIDING a media platform where rural women leaders could address issues, through the well-known radio program Not Just Sweet Talk has begun in Labasa.
The annual program, which is run by FemLINKPacific, promotes shared decision-making, equality, development and peace.
FemLINKPacific executive Sharon Bhagwan-Rolls said the campaign provided an opportunity for rural women leaders to address a range of priorities they would like to be accounted for in the work of the Constitution Commission.
"Women also wish to be accounted for in the long-term process of democratisation," said Ms Rolls.
The broadcast will be preceded by a two-day consultation at St Mary's School.
She said continuing network meetings would be increased to allow more women to document their recommendations for the constitution-making process.
According to FemLINKPacific, its rural community media network meetings, consultations and community radio broadcasts have provided a participatory and interactive process to link rural women's networks with initiatives such as the Fiji Women's Forum.
"The activity is part of the Fiji activities of the Regional Women's Media and Policy Network on UN Security Council Resolution and undertaken with support from USAID and the Rule of Law Initiative as well as the European Union, UNDP - Strengthening Capacities for Peace and Development Project, the Generation Next project supported by the International Women's Development Agency and in collaboration with the Fiji Women's Rights Movement."
