ODI: Transforming the world for girls
About This Show
‘Transforming the world for girls’ is a three-part podcast series from the Overseas Development Institute exploring how harmful gendered norms effect the lives of girls in developing countries.
This podcast brings together four years of learning on gender norms and adolescent girls, with a focus on Ethiopia, Nepal, Uganda and Viet Nam.
Through interviews with girls, their families and communities, and some of the world’s leading gender and development researchers, we explore how we can transform girls’ futures.
