Public Radio International Features Data from 2018 Survey of the Afghan People

December 10, 2018 — Public Radio International features data from the 2018 Survey of the Afghan People in a news feature about the changing status of Afghan women and how recent peace negotiations with the Taliban has raised anxieties of a return to a “male-dominant society.”

A recent study by The Asia Foundation found that the number of Afghans who believe that reconciliation between the Afghan government and the Taliban is possible has increased slightly since last year — or by 1.1 percentage points — to 53.5 percent today.
However, gender divisions remain, as “60.5 percent of males […] believe that reconciliation is possible, but just 46.5 percent of females do.”
