Need: Gender equality training methodologies/approaches

Hello! I'm looking for any really good gender equality training methodologies, approaches, or ideas..... for a gender equality training workshop with both women and men in Swaziland which my organisation (an African conflict resolution organisation based in Cape Town) is holding next month. Have you come across any approaches which really work, are experiential and effective, and genuinely manage to sensitise men (especially!) and women on gender awareness, build bridges of respect between men adn women, and help men realise the damages of patriarchy?.... If so please let me know! Also if you have ideas of very good women's organisations in Swaziland working on these kind of issues?.....Many thanks, and peace. Antonia

Hi darling, Presenlty I am in

Hi darling,
Presenlty I am in Cape Town and last week was our Gender AND Feminism week, the GENDER Class was acnhored by Mercy Carpen the Co-founder of Visthar www.visthar.org in Bangalore, India.
I was opportuned to u\stude Gender in India last year May 2010, and from tehre to Cape Twom in Kleinmond, if you can come doown to Kleinmond, I will give you some of the books we are using but if not, I can send some online resources to you.
Some of the Approaches which you can use are the Gender Analysis Tools; 24 Hour activity profiles, Access and Contol, Opportunities and Constraints and there are other approaches on Bringing men on board.......where you can use the Life Cycle approaches (2 types), Role Reversal, etc....Better still, send your e mail address to me and i iwll send some online resources to you.
There is a friend here on Worldpulse, she is the Botswana VOF Correspondent in 2009, she was with me in April but she lives in Scotland and had worked with NGO for women(about 10 years experience).....so when you send ur e mail, I will forward her e mail addres to you too, she is a good woman.
Respond quickly if you need those things since I iwll be in class busy, till next weekend.
I wilsh you all the best as we work towards equality and equity.....
