With an average score of 70%, gender attitudes in Seychelles are changing for the better, although some evidence of deep-seated patriarchal attitudes is still present. For example, while 80% of women and men agree or strongly agree that “women and men should be treated the same”, 29% 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 274 women and men of all age groups in Seychelles between January 2019 and December 2020. Read the Seychelles report here. Access and share a power point presentation on the findings here.
