Many times, when issues of gender are implicated especially the part related to the status of women in society, both women and men get fidgety and somehow irritated, and this is so because it normally sounds an alarm bell in us for change.

But it is important to acknowledge that we have been products and still are of a manner of socialisation that has shaped what we have come to accept of men and women, but as a human society we need to keep evolving and we do this by constantly interrogating the society and its systems so we can improve ours and that of the generations ahead.

Do join us on a weekly podcast titled ‘Ghana Decides Gender Watch 2016.’  The first episode aired Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 3pm on Soundcloud and on YouTube; and continues every Saturday, same time.

Former UN Secretary General and Ghanaian native Kofi Annan has said, “Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance.”

To this end, let’s make gender part of the agenda in 2016. Let’s have friendly conversations and explore, let’s track, let’s analyse, let’s highlight, let’s educate, and let’s illuminate all gender dynamics leading to the polls.

Join your host, Dr. Louise Carol S. Donkor and seasoned guests every Saturday as we try to search for meanings around this subject. The first episode featured Professor Karen Ross, Professor of  Gender and Media in the School of Arts and Cultures, Newcastle University, UK and Sankofa Reviews founder and Editor, Efe Plange.

Do support us with your valuable ideas and comments when you do listen in as we seek to elevate the political discourse in this direction as well. Drop your comments on Soundcloud, facebook, Twitter and on Youtube.
