Are you ready for change? Gender equality attitudes study 2019

Gender Equality Attitudes Survey


The results shown in this dashboard represent the findings from UN Women's "Are you ready for change?" Gender Equality Attitudes pilot study 2019.

The study aims to understand and measure attitudes that perpetuate gender-based stereotypes and hinder gender equality and women’s empowerment. In so doing, the study will develop greater awareness of the attitudes that perpetuate these stereotypes and impede their elimination.

The findings from this study are meant to inform policy-makers, representatives from academia, advertisers, marketers, private sector leaders, civil society and other types of decision-makers on the prevalence of discriminatory attitudes and norms that perpetuate gender inequality. The study will demonstrate how leveraging attitudinal change can be used as a critical tactic towards advancing gender equality.
