Mainstream media coverage of war often distorts or ignores women’s perspectives and experiences in armed conflict, and also their efforts to build peace. This article focuses on the work of FIRE (Feminist International Radio Endeavour/Radio Internacional Feminista), a women’s international Internet radio initiative produced by Latin American and Caribbean women in Costa Rica, which ‘uses technologies, voices, and actions’ to amplify the voices of women worldwide as they recount their experiences and perspectives of armed conflict. In doing so, FIRE helps promote an alternative vision of human existence that is based on social justice and human rights, and which serves to strengthen women’s and other social and political movements that are based on these values.
