Women On the Waves

Women On the Waves If you are interested to sponsor our programme, please contact us. Women on the Waves is a weekly half hour show presented by a collective of different women and women's groups with the purpose of offering thoughtful and challenging discussions that affect women of all ages and backgrounds. We also aim to celebrate women's achievements in the arts, science, sports, health and community. Some of the groups involved are: The Christchurch Young Feminists' Collective is a group for people who care about women’s rights and gender equality in Christchurch. We discuss issues that impact us, meet socially, and campaign for improvement to the status quo. We are a group open to feminists of all genders as well as people not quite ready to call them feminists, who nonetheless think women have a bit of a raw deal. We want to raise awareness about issues important to us. Solidarity is powerful and we want to be a space where likeminded people can find each other and be empowered through the sharing of ideas and beliefs. https://www.facebook.com/groups/193827854158279/ UC FemSoc is an inclusive feminist society that aims to create a forum for feminist discussion and activism. We explore feminist ideas and theories (with a specific emphasis on the concept of intersectionality), celebrate feminist icons and advocates, and oppose sexist practice on campus and within the wider community. Additional information about UC FemSoc can be found on our active Facebook forum: https://www.facebook.com/groups/215217938641630/ (you will have to subscribe to view content, however); on our pseudo-website: www.ucfemsoc@wordpress.com ; or by emailing ucfemsoc@gmail.com . Ariane Hollis-Locke is the Co-ordinator at the Women’s Centre. The Women’s Centre has been running since the early 1980s providing support to the women of Christchurch. We provide a safe women-only space where women can access resources, courses and counselling. For more details on what we offer go to www.womenscentre.co.nz or call us on 03 371 7414. Hagley Community College Gender Studies Students contribute thoughtful discussion and debate for youth. Mere Ratuva brings social issues to the fore. Gladys Mabondo from Shakti talks about advocacy and support for ethnic women Emma Smart is a photographer, voice over actor and video editor who loves movies, books and all those creative types of things! If she's not in front of a screen or a microphone, you might find her racing around on her roadbike that's affectionately named George. Show Less
