Women’s News from Africa


WINGS increases its focus on Africa

The Women’s International News Service now has active correspondents in Kenya, Uganda, and Cameroon, and occasional reports from Zimbabwe, Ghana, and South Africa. 

WINGS produces radio programs by and about women around the world, and has been in existence for more than 30 years beginning  in San Francisco, where Frieda Werden (a former IAWRT president) was Operations Manager. The all-woman independent radio production company produces and distributes news and current affairs programs which are used by non-commercial radio stations, women’s studies, and individuals.
