PARTICIPANTS of training on Transformative Leadership, Media, Gender and Elections have learned the definition of gender.
The training which started on Monday was aimed at realising enhancing women participation at all fronts in a society.
The training highlighted that gender is a social or cultural construct which results in the behavioural characteristics assigned to men and women in different societies.
“Gender refers to what a society believes the appropriate roles and responsibilities and status of women and men in relation to one another.”
Participants also share their views on what they think of gender.
The workshop also said that gender roles and responsibilities can change but it takes time to transform.
“Sharing of responsibility of gender is significant,” participants were told.
Participants were made to discuss and share ideas about gender.
The workshop ends on Friday.
