To mark International Women’s Day, our script of the week is a broadcaster-how-to guide which introduces radio broadcasters to the topic of gender and gender equality.

The document provides you with some useful definitions, and some facts and statistics about inequalities between men and women. It offers guidelines on how to reach both women and men farmers, involve them in your program, and provide them with the information they need. It also provides a checklist to ensure that your program is respectful of both male and female listeners. Finally, the document encourages you to reflect on gender equality at your station.
