Women broadcasters unite in Montreal

On Thursday, June 11, CKUT Radio in Montreal will host the annual one-day Women
in Radio Conference (WIR) during the week-long National Community Radio Conference.

During the WIR, feminist broadcasters and allies come together to create spaces for greater
participation by women through skill-sharing, visioning, and consciousness-raising.

By prioritizing the voices of marginalized women, the conference addresses
institutional oppression and discrimination in the campus-community radio sector.

The conference also showcases the accomplishments of women broadcasters in the
sector and holds women-only trainings in technical broadcasting.

The Women in Radio keynote presentation is by Audrey Redman, talking on
“Voices from the Underground: Women's Voices, Women's Power” in the
ballroom of the Shatner Building (3480 McTavish, McGill University)
Thursday, June 11 – 17:00-18:30

Audrey Redman is the host of 'Honour the Earth' a First Nation's news and music
program (formerly aired on CKLN community radio at Ryerson University in

The WIR takes place in the Shatner Building (3480 McTavish, McGill University) from
9h00-18h30. This conference is wheelchair accessible and child care will be
provided. For the WIR 2009 Schedule and to find out more about this year's
