Somali Media Women Association (SOMWA) is an indigenous Local Organization for Women Journalists. Non-profit, non-partial, non- political and voluntary organization based in Baidoa. It was initiated by a group of good wishers and women Journalists from the region in January 2006 to address the issues focusing Somali Women Journalists.

In Somalia, Women are being marginalized on the basis of culture and the women issues receive very little attention within the wider society. The anarchy situation and the civil wars have further aggravated the women situation and resulted in continuous abuse of their basic rights of education and security, and are subjected with rampant brutal violence and rape. Women are also denied to receive their fair share in political power sharing.
