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.
