Vignettes-Based Measure of Gender Equality

The Vignettes-based Measure of Gender Equality draws from stories shared and enacted by young adolescents around the world at intensive workshops. Stories common across sites were aggregated and form the basis of the Measure, which aims to illuminate attitudes about gender equity and equality.

The Measure was tested for face validity among 20 adolescents aged 10-14 in each of 15 poor urban or peri-urban sites around the world, pilot tested among 120 adolescents in 14 sites, and after revising, pilot tested again among 75 adolescents in 6 sites.
