With an average score of 63%, gender attitudes in Lesotho are gradually changing for the better, but evidence of deep-seated patriarchal attitudes is still strong. For example, while 75% of women and men agree or strongly agree that “women and men should be treated the same”, 67% agree or strongly agree that “a woman should obey her husband.”

These are among the key findings of the Southern African Gender Progress Study (GPS) administered to 2,452 women and men of all age groups in Lesotho between January 2019 and December 2020. Read the Lesotho report here. Access and share a power point presentation on the findings here.
