Synthesis report

The ‘Study of collected narratives on gender perceptions in the 27 EU Member States’ has been commissioned by EIGE with the aim of mapping the persistence of stereotypical gender attitudes and perceptions.

The study has as its central objective the collection of real-life stories related to gender perceptions in the form of narratives. The specific aim with this study is to map stereotypical gender attitudes/perceptions through stories and put these in their narrative form and original language in an online database.

These narratives have been analysed with a view to identifying how stereotypical gender perceptions influence people’s lives, as well as to provide background information on possible obstacles for increased gender equality in various contexts and on how stereotypical gender perceptions can be overcome.
