Voluntary medical male circumcision is being scaled up at a slow pace in Uganda. Individuals’ awareness must be increased in order for them to develop good attitudes toward male circumcision as an HIV prevention technique. A cross-sectional study design was adopted, with parishes selected using a cluster selection method and the number of homes selected using a probability proportionate to size method. Households were chosen for study using systematic random sampling, and a total of 358 adult female respondents took part in the study. Data was collected using a semi-structured questionnaire. STATA version 14.2 was used to analyze the data. Women who were medical workers and teachers were more likely to support their male partners towards circumcision (aPR=1.8, 95%CI 1.3-2.3 & aPR=1.5, 95%CI 1.1-2.1) respectively. Majority of women who had negative attitude towards male circumcision thought it was a painful procedure. In order to improve attitude towards Voluntary medical circumcision, it is necessary to inform the community of its benefits, and that it is done under local anesthesia and is not a painful procedure.Keywords: Socio-demographic factors, women, male circumcision
