With an average score of 72%, gender attitudes in Mauritius are gradually changing for the better, but evidence of deep-seated patriarchal attitudes is still strong. For example, while 53% of women and men agree or strongly agree that “People should be treated the same whether they are male or female”, 14% agree or strongly agree that “Children belong to a man and his family.”  

These are among the key findings of the Southern African Gender Progress Study (GPS) administered to 1,119 women and men of all age groups in Mauritius between January 2019 and December 2020. Read the Mauritius report here. Access and share a power point presentation on the findings here.
