Initial Results from the International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES)
The International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES) is a comprehensive household questionnaire on men’s attitudes and practices – along with women’s opinions– on a wide variety of topics related to gender equality that was conducted between 2009-2010, among men and women in Brazil, Chile, Croatia, India, Mexico and Rwanda. This report focuses on the initial, comparative analysis of results from the men’s questionnaires across the six countries, with women’s reports on key variables. The findings are grouped around topics like gender attitudes, relationship dynamics and domestic duties, parenting, child-birth involvement, health practices and violence. The report takes a look at the results of the IMAGES questionnaire, its limitations, strategies, the results and their implications in the arena of Gender Equality, and how these findings can help further integrate men into the movement toward gender equality.
