Bangladesh’s Democracy 2018: According to Its People
This survey captures Bangladeshi attitudes on gender, education, the economy, and other issues, and compares findings with earlier surveys conducted in 2017, 2015 and 2006. More than two-thirds of respondents nationwide said the country was going in the right direction in 2018, citing overall development, improved infrastructure, and improved economy. The survey found high levels of support for education equality and acceptance of women in some leadership positions, while traditional gender roles in terms of how women and men spend their time remain dominant, and the gender divide with regard to access to information and use of the Internet persists.
