What stands in the way of gender equality?

Four teenage girls - all 15 or 16 - who have grown up in Iceland, Jordan, the UK and Lesotho - have been talking to Ros Atkins about how social and cultural attitudes stop them achieving equality with men in their countries. On WHYS at 1800 GMT we want to hear the stories from you. What is it that stops your country from treating men and women the same? Is it a cultural issue? Is it to do with media perceptions? Or expectations of who should look after children? Is gender equality even something that a country should look to achieve?
