Submissions for 2014 Winter Internships Now Open!WOMYN’s WORD is a CHRY collective created by womyn-identified people, airing every Wednesday from 12pm-1pm.  Our program critically explores the intersections of different womyn-identified people’s experiences and their social relationships with men and other allies.

We strive to provide a safe space for womyn and their allies to share their experiences and opinions on the subjects that matter to them, without judgment.As an alternative radio program, Womyn’s Word works as a collective to share skills and tasks among ourselves. We are committed to challenging ourselves and analyzing our stories individually and at our monthly story meetings using a consensus-based decision making model.
