We sat down with Auriane Itangishaka, journalist and broadcaster at VOA’s Our Voices show. She shared with us why it was pivotal to start a show focused on women and by women.
About Auriane Itangishaka
Auriane started her career as a journalist almost two decades ago. As she mentioned during the interview below, she wanted to reach out to young people to encourage and motivate them. Today Auriane is a broadcaster for Our Voices which focuses on stories of African women but is also inspired by them.
Our Voices is a show on air on Voices of America. Auriane explains they found it was pivotal to create it because she and her team noticed that whenever there was a conversation about women, experts were men. They felt the need to bring more female voices to the conversation on women. And this culminated in Our Voices which is a show about women and by women.
What Women Want
In the conversation with Auriance, she mentioned that to address to a female audience, journalists need to “create content that create solutions. Because women already know the situation they are in”, what they want is to know and activate the solutions.
