Women community radio program for a culture of peace, equality and reconciliation
PazalaMujer is a radio program, from the city of Barranquilla, Colombia, created in 2017 as a tool for participation, impact and appropriation of alternative radio programs (Radio Vokaribe Community).
PazalaMujer aims to create spaces of communication for young women on the radio where they become protagonists to stimulate and make visible proposals for the construction of peace in its different expressions: the diffusion of the Peace agreements of the government with the FARC-EP (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia- Ejército del Pueblo), promoting participation and strengthening community media, promoting a culture of peace, participation, equality, non-discrimination, peaceful coexistence with both social justice and reconciliation.
PazalaMujer integrates in its broadcasts non-discriminatory content and respect for women’s right to be free from violence. These are life stories, interviews, figures and data, opinions and reflections on the reality of women. These are living traces of our world, experiences of young peacemakers.
PazalaMujer is an initiative of the «Red departamental de mujeres jóvenes del Atlántico» in the city of Barranquilla. This network is a space for participation and leadership promotion for the empowerment of young women. It was created in March 2012 as a response to the problems in their territories, such as the various acts of violence against women, the immersion of young women in street gangs and the wave of femicides.
