Special series broadcast: Women and Water
Starting Tuesday, March 15th and running for 9 weeks, UMFM is pleased to be airing a very special series called Women and Water.
Developed by BC MLA Michelle Mungall (Nelson-Creston), this 9-part series promotes the protection of water as a human right. Stemming from representing her water-rich region and her efforts to save the Glacier-Howser watershed from a proposed private power project, Michelle developed and hosted this radio series that looks at issues sure to strike a chord with UMFM listeners concerned about the conditions of Lake Winnipeg and Manitoba’s rich water resources locally and water rights globally.
About the series:
“Women and Water is a radio series that shares the stories of women advocating for water. Host Michelle Mungall is the MLA representing Nelson-Creston, a beautiful water-rich constituency in the Kootenay region of British Columbia. The show raises consciousness about threates to this basic human need through passionate interviews with women crusaders who have made it their mission to defend access to clean, pure, public water.
As activists, women play important roles in society. They stand up for their beliefs and give a strong voice to issues that matter to everyone. The women on this program are no exception. And when it comes to water they will not be mute.”
While UMFM will not be airing it, Michelle will be hosting a live talk show event in Vancouver on March 22nd to mark World Water Day. The event will be broadcast live on ustream and via the Women and Water website, and will be available as a podcast on that site at a later date.
