    In keeping with the focus on International Women’s Day, our script of the week focuses on gender.

    This week’s script is a broadcaster guidance document which introduces radio broadcasters to the topic of gender and gender equality. It provides some useful definitions, and presents some facts and statistics on existing inequalities between men and women.

    The document provides guidelines on how to reach both women and men farmers, involve them in your program, and give them the information they need. It also includes 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 own station.
