Gender Equality Attitudes Survey

The results shown in this dashboard represent the findings from UN Women's Gender Equality Attitudes Study 2022: The levers for change. It updates the findings from the earlier study Are you ready for change? Gender equality attitudes 2019.

The study aims to measure the prevalence of discriminatory attitudes and gender-based stereotypes that perpetuate gender inequality, and demonstrate how widespread and deeply entrenched these views are.

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 and provide critical insights on how to leverage attitudinal change as a crucial tactic towards accelerating the full and effective implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and notably Sustainable Development Goal 5 to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
