SNAPSheet: Social Norms, Attitudes and Practices in the Philippines


To gain a deeper understanding of women’s and men’s perceptions of gender equality, Investing in Women conducted a Social Norms, Attitudes and Practices Survey (SNAPS) on women’s and men’s roles at work and at home. The study included survey results from 6,000 respondents aged 18-40 and living in urban areas in Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam (1,000 women and 1,000 men in each country). The insights presented in this study can be used to better inform strategies that will deliver women’s economic empowerment. This factsheet presents notable findings for the Philippines.
