Video, Gender and Participatory Development


This chapter reflects on a gender-sensitive use of video for participatory development. Following a definition of "participatory video", some of the more gender-neutral attributes of the medium are described, followed by the discussion of a Jamaican pilot project on communication which has used participatory video for soil-nutrient technology development with rural women. Other experiences from Peru, India and St. Lucia suggest an initial set of considerations for those using or contemplating the use of video for participatory development.
