Members of International Association of Women in Radio and Television (IAWRT) from all over the world participated in the regional conference in Entebbe, Uganda.
IAWRT international board secretary Sarah Nakibukka spoke of Ugandan women media workers consistently being paid at lower levels than male colleagues and women being pushed from the workforce when they have children.
IAWRT President Violet Gonda outlined a highly productive 2018 with a record number of events at the CSW, the production of a new documentary, a new website safety resource, and a handbook on community radio.
The 72-page book was launched by the IAWRT President, Violet Gonda, and the editor and head of the Philippines Chapter Jola Diones-Mamangun, in Kampala Uganda.
It narrates the nearly three-decade long history of community radio broadcasting in the Philippines, laying down the challenges it faces in one of the most dangerous countries for journalists in the world.
