Radio Violeta went on air in 2019 as a feminist community radio station in Mexico City. The station has xx women involved and broadcast 24/7.

The station has around 150.000 listeners and receive regular feed-back from women listeners stressing the importance to have the station, which covers issues of special importance to women, which is covered no-where else. Radio Violeta consciously challenges the traditional ways of the media and aim to transform communication to be more real: real women’s real voices covering all the issues of importance in women’s lives.

Women on the Global Airwaves is a podcast series bringing you stories from around the world. The stories are brought to you by me, Birgitte Jallov, who has worked in this area for a lifetime from within my initiative: EMPOWERHOUSE. In many realities women’s voices are among those least heard and women are often not being respected with equal access to their human rights.Women in community radio anre working to change these narratives and realities. They ensure that women’s voices and stories and sharing their life and realities in the public, increasing the respect and space.

Impact assessments of community media on different continents and in different realities have shown that when community media break the silence, unhealthy traditions change. It takes some time, but it happens. One of the most prominent impacts I have found when working in communities everywhere is, that violence against women and children has decreased, and that women have begun to have a more active, visible and respected role in the community.In this podcast series the community radio women will, themselves, identify and document their experiences with community media as platforms and channels for empowering women and increasing women’s role in the concrete communities and in consequence thereof, in society in general. And the podcasts seek answers to why and how – or why not?
