YEMEN - UNIVERSITY STUDENTS RESEARCH - GENDER ROLES - FUTURE
A Women without Borders report on the attitudes and perspectives of Yemeni youth, focussing on aspirations and changing gender roles.
Our survey was aimed at gauging the attitudes of Yemeni university ;
students on a wide range of issues, but with a specific focus on views toward men and women as well as the future. Our research sought to determine young people's openness to shifts in traditional gender roles and to develop an overview of the issues they face on a daily basis."
Yemen’s youth is the driving force behind the protests that are currently calling for regime change and social justice in one of the Arab world’s least developed countries. On the eve of the uprisings in Yemen, Women without Borders conducted a survey to gauge the aspirations, interests and perspectives of the young people who will shape the country’s future. The “Fair Share in Yemen” study, supported by the OPEC Fund for International Development, focuses on students at Sana’a University, comparing their goals and dreams to the realities of life in Yemen.
