Media Matters for Women connects women and girls living in ‘the last mile’ – beyond the reach of roads, electricity, or the internet – with journalists who report regularly and professionally on issues relevant to their lives in their language. 

We prioritise working in countries where women and girls are suffering from high levels of gender based violence – including harmful practices like FGM and child marriage – and experience barriers to accessing to education, health, and livelihood services.

Our priority regions and countries are: 


Mano river region, west africa
