Saturday, June 1, 2019

The Abridged version of the Perceptions Study on Social Norms in Malawi serves as an executive summary of the baseline study for the EVAW thematic component of the Women’s Empowerment Programme (WEP) 2018-2021. This study revealed various perceptions of social norms around VAWG in Malawi. Particularly, it shows how pervasive social norms support gender inequality and VAWG, including harmful practices.
