FemLINKpacific will be a catalyst for change. We seek a world where there is gender justice, ecological sustainability, peace, freedom, equality and human rights.
Our mission is to be a strong and effective feminist community media and policy network recognising and affirming our multi-ethnic and multi-faith founding principles.
- Women, young women and the under-served communities access key information and communication platforms and participate in public dialogue and decision-making and lead shifts in public and political opinion.
- Through the production of radio and multimedia content and publications which raise awareness of women’s leadership and participation at all levels of decision-making.
- Working collaboratively with CSOs, donors and development partners and strengthening our own internal governance systems and processes as it refers to our finances and operations as well as our human resource capacities.
The overarching focus of FemLINKPACIFIC’s range of community media initiatives is “women speaking to women for peace”, a direct link with the women’s peace initiatives during the May 2000 crisis, in particular the Blue Ribbon Peace Vigil, where FemLINKPACIFIC was “born”.
The overarching development objective of our work is to address the imbalances caused by the traditional decision-making structures which impede women and young women’s effective participation, especially from the rural population and the poor, to communicate openly on common matters.
By developing and implementing a range of women’s media initiatives FemLINKPACIFIC continues to offer a “safe space” to articulate and exchange their viewpoints.
