Public perception studies are an important tool to assess women’s participation in politics and decision-making and identify underlying causes for their current status. This survey was designed to produce comprehensive and reliable data to assess women’s current participation in politics and decision-making that could then be used to inform future measures.

The survey compiled a considerable amount of interesting information which it measured against data from 2008 and used to identify problems to be addressed. Among its findings: A significant majority of interviewees said that women were under-represented in politics and decisions-making because of a political environment dominated by aggressive men.
