Liberia Women Media Action Committee (LIWOMAC)

The Liberia Women Media Action Committee (LIWOMAC) is a media development organization that was established in response to the abuses suffered by women and children during the 2003 insurgency. The organization is dedicated to women’s rights and development in Liberia. It has established the first ever women owned and run radio station (LWDR FM 91.1) in the country which focuses on women’s issues. LIWOMAC, through the radio and community forums, provides platforms for rural women to voice their concerns and hold their government accountable. It also focuses on peace building, sexual and gender-based violence, and skills training.
