Am 21. Oktober begehen die Freien Radios den Welttag des feministischen Radios!
Seit 2018 beschallen wir an diesem Tag Euch und das Patriarchat mit feministischer Musik, Interviews, Erzählungen, Themensendungen, Reportagen, Podiumsdiskussionen und hoffen, dass es dabei untergeht. Auch Ihr könnt mitmachen, zum Beispiel in dem Ihr Eure eigenen queer-feministischen Alltagsgeschichten einschickt (https://umagaunanmitkaya.noblogs.org/) oder indem Ihr euer Radio an diesem Tag ans offene Fenster stellt und ganz laut aufdreht.
Wieso feministischer Radiotag?
Details zum Programm
Sowohl als auch Sendungen von den Radios Radio blau, bermuda.funk, Radio Orange 94.0 und den Redaktionen Hälfte des Äthers und La Radio.
Außerdem sendet auch das feministische Garten Radiokunst Projekt, Datscha Radio in der Nacht vom 21.-22. Oktober. Denn unser feministischer Radioaktivismus geht natürlich über 24h hinaus!

On the 21st of October community radios celebrate the International Feminist Radioday
Tune in and listen to over 24 hours of feminist content from over 12 editorial teams in 3 german-speaking countries.
Just like last year we want to broadcast against the patriarchy with feminist music, interviews, stories, features, shows and discussions. You can also be a part of our radio-activism by sharing your own queer-feminist „every day“ story (https://umagaunanmitkaya.noblogs.org/) or by opening the window, placing your radio on the window sill and blasting it at full volume.
Why do we need a feminist radioday?
The media sector is a cis-male domain. According to a study by the ZHAW less than 39% of the people who shape what we listen and see in Switzerland are women. ProQuote claims that only 2 of 12 public radio stations are directed by women. In these statistics people who identify as trans*, inter or non-binary are not even visible. Chief editors are usually male, the images of women and girls in media are full of clichés, many journalists suffer from sexual assaults at their workplae, topics are distributed according to gender roles – the list of reasons to focus on feminist media coverage is long.
Community radios are non-commercial, open and self-determined and have therefore functioned as platform for those, whos voices are often not heard. The working conditions for women, inter, non-binary and trans are therefore less harsh than in mainstream media. Nonetheless patriarchical power-structures are also present in our field of work. It is mostly male voices which we hear, also in community radio.
In 2017 many editorial teams met for the feminist radio event „Claim the Waves“ in Zurich. They decided to network and annually claim the airwaves together on the 21st of October.
Feminist journalsm means to us, that we broadcast our own views, music, topics and listen to people and stories which are usually ignored.
For your ears we present you the following on the 21st of October 2019:
