Bangladesh: Creating the First Women’s Broadcast News Agency

In a country where women have played a minor role in TV news, Kawser Mahmud has created the country’s first women’s broadcast news agency. The agency is giving women the skills they need to fill key positions in broadcast news at Bangladesh’s 10 newly licensed TV stations—and to produce stories on issues that may be of interest to women viewers.

Mahmud trained nearly three dozen women as reporters, producers and camera operators at the Television News Agency (TVNA). Most have been scooped up by the new independent TV stations.
