Girls on Air is a radio training project for young women from the City of Yarra's culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

The Girls On Air project provided radio training, as well as support and resourcing to produce radio features for broadcast and podcast on International Women’s Day 8 March 2010. The radio features cover social and political issues affecting young women. 

The Girls On Air project was funded by the City of Yarra

Thursday
Tune in from midnight Wednesday until midnight Thursday on March 8 to hear 24 hours of women and gender diverse voices, talkback, music, current affairs, union news, community languages and much more. We celebrate the resistance, talents, strengths and power of women living here in the Kulin Nation and also our sisters living and creating change all over so-called Australia and the world. We want to prioritize - not just on the 8th of March but every day - the voices of women in a world that violently silences and ignores women's voices and experiences. This IWD celebration is a celebration of feminism that is of ALL women and not a privileged few, a feminism which knows that liberation from gendered oppression can never be achieved without dismantling all systems of domination and subjugation.
