SETTING THE GENDER AGENDA FOR COMMUNICATION POLICY
Women in Community and Indigenous Media
María Eugenia Chávez
Female members of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) are taking advantage of the organizing presence of community and indigenous media outlets that are active in GAMAG globally. This is in order to address the lack of clear and specific rules recognizing women’s rights to communication and the transformation of gender stereotypes into laws and public policy. It is also so that these outlets develop their own instruments to support women’s participation and negotiation within their own collectives, networks, movements and national and local decision-making bodies.
