Our mission is to build a support network for women radio producers and broadcasters worldwide.

Specific Aims:

  • To develop and distribute funding for women's radio broadcasting, production, and distribution projects
  • To promote and showcase the work of women in radio worldwide, using web pages and netcasting.
  • To forge links between radio women and their allies: funders, a worldwide audience, technical support people, strategic partners, and the global women's movement.
  • To help women worldwide develop their own low-power micropower broadcasting stations. And in doing so to provide technical assistance, production equipment, and training.

The Women's Radio Fund is a member of Women's International Network of AMARC (World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters) and the International Association of Women in Radio and Television.



The World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) Africa promotes the right to communicate. They develop community radio through a number of services to members and by promoting access to and ownership of communication tools for community empowerment and social change.

Since its inception in 1987, the Global Fund has provided significant support to groups engaged in radio and media work. Click here for more information.

International Women's Day



March 8
March 8, the Women’s International Day, is celebrated throughout the world. This special day provides an opportunity to reflect on the progress made to advance women's equality and emancipation, to assess the challenges facing women in contemporary societies, to consider future steps to enhance the status of women and, of course, to celebrate the gains made in these areas.
