Airing on Mondays, from 1-2pm
The Women's Magazine is an hour long radio program that airs on KPFA radio that presents and discusses women's lives and issues globally and locally from a radical multiracial feminist/mujerist/womanist perspective. We bring women's issues, lives, culture, music, struggles and achievements to the forefront and bring a feminist critique of issues important to the progressive community.
The Women's Magazine airs every Monday from 1-2pm on KPFA radio, 94.1 FM or online at www.kpfa.org. Located in Berkeley, California, KPFA is one of the oldest and largest listener sponsored radio stations in the U.S. and can be heard from Sacramento to Fresno.
Who are we?
We are group of diverse women of various ages and races many of whom are programmers on other shows on KPFA. Some of us work on other shows like Voices of the Middle East and North Africa, Pushing Limits, Free Speech Radio News and La Raza Chronicles and some of us are recent graduates of KPFA's Apprenticeship Program and others are activists and community members.
As part of our commitment to bring in diverse women's voices we are providing training in radio production skills for women from the community to learn how to produce radio and develop their own voice. You will learn all facets of radio production and will produce radio segments that will be aired on Women's Magazine.
We are looking for women who are committed to the vision of our show and to learning how to produce radio pieces in order to bring voices of women that are not represented in the media to the airwaves. You must be available a couple of evenings a week and several weekends a month. This training will require about 6- 8 hours a week and because of the length of time it takes to learn radio skills you must be able to commit to a 6 month minimum amount of time working with us. But this training is really for those who are interested in having an ongoing commitment to working with us and to women's issues.
Because of the limited space all applicants will be asked to fill out a 1 page statement prior to being accepted describing 1) why they are interested in working with us, 2) their political experience, the communities they are part of and their interest in feminist issues and KPFA , 3) their experience and interest in radio production and 4) their availability in terms of time. You can e-mail it to the e-mail address below.
