Media Matters for Women prioritizes working in countries where women and girls experience significant barriers to accessing education, health, and livelihood services.

We work in countries where information and communication technology remains an underdeveloped tool for rural women, who are even further removed from the Information Age than the men whose poverty they share.  If women do not learn to use these technologies, they will become further marginalized from their communities and the world.  

We also choose to work in crisis and post-conflict zones, which often feature a constant background of sexual violence that oppresses women and girls across all aspects of life, including health and wellbeing.

Our priority regions and countries are: 


Mano river region, west africa
