Recorded 5 TV shows, edited and produced 6 TV broadcasts on local TV Dalmatia, i.e. 12 with reruns. The sixth TV show is a collage of 5 earlier broadcasts which demonstrates the logic behind the shows: the common underlying concept of all the shows is the same creative force, illustrated by different women's organizations and their specific entrepreneurial initiatives, whether they operate in the city, island, or rural areas.

It is evident that with their activities these civil society organizations improve the quality of community life in which they operate, affecting the reduction of unemployment and empower (in this case) women to run women's entrepreneurial initiatives in order to achieve economic independence, as seen through the particular TV show which features positive examples from everyday life about the entrepreneurial initiatives of the organizations.
