About the Radio Program
Launched on August 17, 2012 “Women’s Success” is Strey Khmer’s new Radio show which will be dedicated to round-table discussions and call-ins. This program is aired twice a month on Fridays and aims to increase and promote the number of Cambodian women in politics. Women’s Success is broadcasted in Khmer on National Radio Station AM 918KHz from 11-12pm.
The programme also involves the expansion of our existing listeners’ clubs including to those established in Kratie, Stung Treng and Ratanakiri provinces. Listeners’ clubs are spaces for all women to collectively listen to radio broadcasts, as well as to discuss the relevant issues talked about on air.
The main objectives of the Women’s Success radio program are to:
Provide women with the opportunity to communicate amongst each other and with the public; Real women, raising real issues and giving real answers about women’s lives and women’s choices; Use women’s voices as a political message to bring about real change for women; Provide training and technical support for women who aspire to be involved in the media and to encourage more women to enter the field.
The Women’s Success Radio Program, aims to achieve exactly what it’s name suggests: the success of women in Cambodia. This especially refers to women’s success in politics, as the program seeks to encourage local women to be leaders in their communities, to become involved in politics through educating women and empowering women throughout Cambodia to exert their rights.
The program was launched on August 17, 2012 and is generously supported by our funders PAZ Y DESARROLLO (PYD).
