Information is an important tool for national development. However, it needs to be quality information if it is to bring about positive change not only at individual but also societal level.

Positive change comes about when individual members harness their resources towards common goal. This communal effort comes about if such citizens share a common understanding of issues that affect them. It is for this reason that the media plays a crucial role in providing platform for sharing ideas and ensuring participatory development. This virtually empowers them. The media is described as the fourth estate because the profession’s founding fathers established strict rules and values that became the journalist’s constitution. We can see this was always present in the works and reports of great journalists such as James Cameron and Alistair Cooke. They realized right at the outset of the birth of the mass media that the power of the media lies in representing the public interest before the three other estates. The media simply have no power without the people. The media has a significantly critical role to play and empower women in all aspects of economic, political and social. Newspapers, radios, magazines and televisions internationally have been instrumental in empowering women globally. However, little has been achieved especially at regional and grassroots levels. Newspapers, radios, televisions have not touched the ground particularly in empowering women. BBC radio has special programmes scheduled for women; the station has appropriate means that improves awareness and offer knowledge that helps them improve their livelihood.
