Journalist of the Year award nominee, 2014
First broadcast live, Women's Edition is
a radio show about women's contemporary rural lives
- on the farm, in the boardroom, raising children,
producing food or in public life. Each week, architects,
farmers, designers and politicians joined Mary in
the studio for animated conversation and debate.
The series also featured rural women's lives around
the world: highlights include a report on the problem
of land grab for Zambia's female farmers; Dr. Odette
Nyiramilimo, former Minister and Senator in Rwanda's
parliament discussed gender quotas in politics and
the show featured a report on Sangham Radio, a station
run entirely by Dalit women in rural India.
