Working with the media on gender and education: a guide for training and planning (worksheets)
How can education and gender campaigners, and organisations and coalitions, work more effectively with the media to promote gender-equitable education? This guide was developed following two workshops which were held in Nairobi, Kenya and Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2005 and 2006. Gender equality issues in education are explored and practical advice on working with the media is given. Each section explores different aspects of working with the media on gender and education issues, and the role of advocacy and the media. These include: the global context of campaigning on education, the national, regional and global challenges of education, thinking on gender and education, gender equality and education, education and gender and the media, and working with the media. Throughout the guide suggestions of activities to help groups generate discussion and explore the issues addressed are given. Set of worksheets that correspond to these activities are provided.
