The international community is being urged to put commitments to gender equality into action by ensuring that development assistance to post-conflict countries also reaches women on the ground.

The appeal was made by Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, the Special Envoy on Gender at the African Development Bank (ADB).

Ms Fraser-Moleketi, who is from South Africa, was a panellist at a UN meeting looking at what impact a UN Security Council resolution 1325 on women, peace and security, has had on the continent.

Dianne Penn caught up with her following the event.
