This report provides the results for the 2019 Gender Equality Survey. This survey was undertaken in order to update the baseline 2017 survey.
- The large majority of New Zealanders (80%) agree that ‘gender equality is a fundamental right’
- Less than one-half of New Zealanders (42%) agree that ‘gender equality has been achieved for the most part in New Zealand’
- Notwithstanding the fact that more New Zealanders this year believe ‘gender equality has been achieved for the most part in New Zealand’, New Zealand’s gender equality record in specific domains is similar to 2017
- Many New Zealanders believe that women generally are the most disadvantaged by gender inequality, as are specific groups of women
- New Zealanders believe that achieving gender equality would potentially have the most positive impact on achieving pay parity
