Nike v Commonwealth – who's best on women's rights?
September 15, 2011
Here’s a brief workout for your gender analysis skills, in advance of this weekend’s launch of the 2012 World Development Report on gender and inequality. Two superficially similar short (2 minute) videos on women’s empowerment: one from Nike Foundation, and the other from the Commonwealth. Your task – compare, contrast and identify what’s missing. Then vote. [update – you can now vote for the parody version, which I’ve just included as a third video – h/t Toby Quantrill ]
First the Nike Girl Effect video
Next up, the Commonwealth Countries League Education Fund (they really need a new name….)
