As part of the radio series Samajhdari ('Mutual Understanding'), Equal Access created the Most Understanding Husband Competition, a unique initiative to provide positive male role models. Inviting men to nominate themselves as "the most understanding husband", Equal Access received messages from thousands of men across Nepal. Ten husbands were selected as finalists, with their stories featured on the national radio series. Watch video below.

Equal Access is a 2006 grantee of the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women. Samajhdari is a radio series developed by Equal Access in Nepal to empower women and to promote men's participation in ending violence against women and girls. Reaching over a million listeners every week, Samajhdari allows for both women and men to simultaneously be the listeners and speakers, the changed and the 'change makers'. 

Managed by UN Women on behalf of the UN system, the UN Trust Fund works to stop all of the diverse forms of gender-based violence that undercut women's rights around the world.
