The International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES) is one of the most comprehensive household studies carried out around the world on men’s and women’s attitudes and practices on a wide variety of topics related to gender equality. In Tanzania, IMAGES provided new data and insights to understand how men’s and women’s gendered attitudes, behaviors, and norms impact a range of well-being and development outcomes, from sexual and reproductive health to caregiving, violence, laws and policies, and more.
Published in the report Momentum Toward Equality, the study combined an in-depth household survey conducted with over 2,000 men and women across five regions on Tanzania with qualitative research focused on understanding the gendered dynamics shaping the lives of Tanzanian adolescents and young adults. It broke new ground as the first IMAGES study – of more than 40 that had been conducted worldwide – to include adolescent respondents under the age of 18, collect time-use data, and measure both gender-related social norms and individual attitudes.
