The Feminist Lens Recieves IAWRT Honor!

November 4th, 2013 by admin

We are very honored to have received one of the two HONORABLE MENTIONS at the 2013 International Association of Women in Radio and Television awards for excellence for our program “Breaking the Silence”

Honorable Mention #1

“Breaking the Silence” by Maya Friedler and Marilyn Campbell from USA in the series The Feminist Lens produced by the Women´s Media Group Chicago.  The program used arts to give women who have experienced violence a voice.  Instead of “facts and figures” the producers said, they sentered their show “on the personal”.  Poetry, music, a letter from a woman working with women survivors of sexual violence in the DRC (Democratic Republic of the Congo) and good use of sound, kept the jury engrossed for the entire 30 minutes duration.”

Thank you IAWRT!

We will have a new show to be broadcast on WFMT on November 23rd at 6:30 pm so stay tuned!
