WHO WE ARE

The Women's Media Group began when a group of 30 women and girls from the provinces of Sierra Leone, who were victims of domestic abuse, took back control of their own lives. They trained in media production and now make films about rape, gender issues, sexual health, FGM and women's rights.
It began when WAYout filmmaker Susan Kargbo made a film about domestic abuse in their village near Bo. The women and girls in the film asked Susan to train them to make their own films and six months later workshops began. The group believes that women should have autonomy, health, dignity and safety and that local audiences relate more to films with a local voice. The films were so successful, playing to packed audiences, the Women's Media Group was set up by WAYout to continue the work, create jobs and make films for a national and international audience.
