Gender issues

Gender equality

Theme pack

Here is our theme pack of FRI resources for February, which includes resources on a variety of gender issues. We recently concluded a four-week discussion on gender equality, and these resources may help you plan and produce a radio program that addresses some of the topics discussed. Also, International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8, so you can use these resources to plan and produce a special program for that week.

We also have a new self-guided learning module about how to plan a gender-responsive radio program. You can find this module at To make your program gender-responsive, you need to ensure your program is respectful of both the women and the men in your audience. The self-guided gender module provides you with some useful definitions, and gives you information on how you can reach and involve both women and men farmers in your program. The module also provides you with a checklist to make sure your program is respectful of the women and men in your audience. To access the module, go to:
