allthatstandsinthewayAround the world young women still lack the same opportunities as men, despite most countries legislating against gender discrimination. So, what are the entrenched social and cultural attitudes that stand in the way of girls achieving equality?

Through personal and informal accounts of the lives of teenage girls in Iceland, London, Lesotho, and Oman Ros Atkins considers what freedom looks like to these women, and how the language of gender can stand in their way.

This program forms part of the freedom 2014 Season and aired on Friday, March 28, 2014 at 10 AM and 8 PM.
