Gender Equality Podcast

Global Development podcast: gender equality

In the first of a new series of podcasts, we discuss what can be done to improve the lives of women and girls around the world – a major development challenge.

Gender inequality remains one of the top development challenges of the 21st century. Women and girls continue to fare worse across many headline development indicators – from poverty and health to education and political participation. But what’s holding back progress on gender equality? And what can be done to make the world a better place for women and girls?

In this edition of our new Global Development podcast, we look at the impact of the global financial crisis on women around the world, examine new ideas to push forward progress on gender issues, and ask what can be done to tackle gender-based inequalities in the 21st century.

To discuss these issues, Madeleine Bunting is joined in the studio by Rachel Moussi√©, women’s rights adviser on economic policy at ActionAid International, and Jane Martinson, women’s editor at the Guardian. We also hear from women in New Delhi and are joined down the line by Jeni Klugman, director of gender and development at the World Bank.
