The 2018 Survey of the Afghan People provides critical insights on the status of women in Afghanistan and highlights gender gaps on a wide range of issues. The results of The Asia Foundation’s 14th annual public opinion survey are based on face-to-face interviews with a nationally representative sample of more than 15,000 Afghan citizens across the country’s 34 provinces, and offer a unique opportunity to understand women’s and men’s perceptions of the role of women, security, the economy, corruption, justice, youth issues, reconciliation with the Taliban, access to media, governance, and political participation.

Experts from The Asia Foundation and the United States Institute of Peace will discuss findings from the 2018 Survey and reflect on the implications of this opinion data for women’s rights and gender equality in Afghanistan.
