This guide has been developed following two ‘Gender, Education and the Media’ workshops which were held in Nairobi, Kenya in December 2005 and in Dhaka, Bangladesh in March 2006. It brings together learning from both workshops in order to help organisations working on gender and education develop and implement media-advocacy strategies for gender equitable education. The guide has been developed by the Beyond Access: Gender Education and Development Project, in collaboration with the Africa Network Campaign on Education for All (ANCEFA) in Kenya and the Campaign for Popular Education (CAMPE) and Steps Towards Development in Bangladesh. The guide is divided into 7 sections. Each section explores a different aspect of working with the media on gender and education issues, starting with looking at education campaigning in general before focusing on gender issues in education, and the role of advocacy and the media. You will find practical advice for working with the media on gender and education issues and suggestions of activities to help individuals or groups generate discussion and develop their understanding of the issues addressed in more depth. These activities can be used as the basis for training others. A set of worksheets that correspond to these activities accompanies the guide and can be photocopied and used alongside the guide.
