International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th every year. Its aim: to celebrate the achievements of women whilst focusing world attention on areas in which women and men are still unequal. And gender based violence is just one such manifestation of gender inequality that exists the world over. This podcast showcases a new approach to tackling gender based violence which partners in Zambia and Sierra Leone are championing; involving men as part of the solution. As Emma Mwinga (pictured) from Zambia National Women's Lobby says: "We're engaging men and boys to be advocates of change within our communities."
