News On Pakistani Women From Across The Globe

What they say about Uks

I wanted to send my appreciation to the Uks team for your recent progress report. I enjoyed hearing the stories and feedback from the radio producers. The quotes your group used to tell the progress of the project was truly useful for me understand how you do your work and what it means to your group. Similarly the experience sharing and learning process that was integrated into the project was impressive and touched me as a fellow feminist. I very much enjoyed the report and I hope to read the next one at the end of the grant period

Devi Leiper,
Program Associate,
Asia & Oceania The Global Fund for Women
Uks has done a tremendous and commendable job in highlighting the importance of radio and how this form of media can serve to highlight gender sensitive programming by promoting women’s issues, based on the concept of media advocacy as a central strategy for raising public awareness and sensitization. I congratulate Uks and its team for undertaking and accomplishing this task with dedication and commitment , and I hope more efforts of this kind will be made in future to carry forward the good work done already in the common interest of the people of our country.

Prof. Dr. Saeeda Asadullah Khan,
Vice Chancellor,
Fatima Jinnah Women University, Rawalpindi
I am delighted that a network for women in media is taking root in Pakistan! Panos Pakistan supports this effort whole-heartedly because in the course of our work, which is to work with and through the media to improve coverage of critical development issues, we have found a disappointing lack of women in general and in particular in the upper echelons of the media industry. There needs to be more women managing media in Pakistan, and indeed in the regions, and we hope this effort by Uks will provide a much needed platform for Pakistan’s media women to make themselves seen and heard.
