The women’s media network Fempress unites feminists and academics through: a monthly Latin American magazine; a Press Service on women’s issues; and a Radio Press Service across Latin America. Santa Cruz shows how these goals were achieved, from Fempress’s modest start drawing together a small, disparate women’s movement. Fempress’s founding aim of unity through communication has now largely been achieved. Through its magazine, radio and press services, women are educated about issues that constrain them, and illiterate women, as well as those in the official movement, are empowered.
