THE experiences of Pacific women broadcasters will be featured in the first episode of a new morning show which is being launched Fiji.
It's part of the Pacific's first women-led community radio station FemLINKPACIFIC's community media campaign which is linking the priorities of the 2013 UN Commission on the Status of Women and International Women's Day Campaign.
According to a statement, 'Morning WAVES on FemTALK 89FM Suva' will be hosted from FemLINKPACIFIC's Nasese community media centre from 7am to 10am on weekdays starting today and will provide an additional 15-hour broadcast platform in Suva to feature radio programs from rural centres as well as promote women in decision-making through the Here are the Women' segment.
And when the show begins it will feature renowned Pacific broadcaster Bernadette Rounds Ganilau of Fiji and Lisa Horiwapu of the Solomon Islands.
"The two-week broadcast launch will be an opportunity to continue our organisation's efforts to profile the contribution of women in so many sectors of society including in the media," said FemLINKPACIFIC executive director Sharon Bhagwan Rolls. "Through our community radio station we are able to undertake in-depth conversations and dialogue on opportunities and challenges to advancing gender equality from a diversity of perspectives from women."
