Women Groups at grass root have economic independence through garden & flower care service and agriculture project. But less of knowledge around technology media in order to spread the news about their activities or jobs, and sometimes also hampered by patriarchy culture which stated that this kind of activities only for men. Whereas women have a sense of beauty treatments in park service that will encourage economic income of families So it requires women journalists which can use audio visual technology correctly, distribute news to wider society in order to tell about women struggle
