Radio Plugs

The following plugs were produced by women from the media, NGOs, and grassroots organisations who participated in the training activities in Cagayan de Oro, Zamboanga and Cotabato.

Despite the upsurge of high technology communications, radio remains a vital tool of education and communication amongst societies in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly those sectors that are lower-income and rural based. Given that media plays such an important role in shaping the lifestyles and values of society, the women's movement both regionally and globally, have sought to influence the use and form of media such that women have access to gender-sensitive programming. Although radio is seen as an important form of alternative media, particularly for women's programming there is very little by way of production training, gender-sensitivity training and sustainable networking in this region. Isis International-Manila's research in women's radio programming affirms that there is insufficient training, networking and actual materials development in this area. The radio production training organised by Isis International-Manila in April 2000 in Bangkok aims to start a process of bridging this gap such that women broadcasters in both Asia and Pacific are better equipped through gender-sensitive and technical training, networking, strategising, mechanisms and availability of radio materials. This project is also an attempt towards the interface between radio and the new information and communication technologies
