With an average score of 62%, gender attitudes in Namibia are gradually changing for the better, but evidence of deep-seated patriarchal attitudes is still strong. For example, just 21% of women and men agree or strongly agree that “A woman has the right to insist on a man using a condom”, and just 18% agree or strongly agree that “People should be treated the same whether they are male or female.”  

These are among the key findings of the Southern African Gender Progress Study (GPS) administered to 952 women and men of all age groups in Namibia between January 2019 and May 2021. Read the Namibia report here. Access and share a power point presentation on the findings here.
