The South Asia Women’s Media Network called SWAN was established during the second conference of ‘Women of South Asia: Partners in Development’ held in Chandigarh in March 2010 with the theme “Women Guiding the Destiny of South Asia”.
Ms Nandini Sahai, Director, the International Centre, Goa, is the Coordinator for SWAN on Women in Media.
This network is a central hub to which all the 8 networks of 1) Arts and Literature, 2) Crafts and textiles, 3) Education, 4) Environment 5) Health 6) Media 7) Micro-credit and8) Peacemaking could contribute their daily, weekly or monthly updates and can work together for the betterment of women in South-Asia. SWAN will give “Voice to the Voiceless”.
We plan to resurface issues that have been subversive for quite a long time, discuss and debate on them and come out with recommendations which can be taken as policy decisions.
