How do young people perceive gender equality?
As part of the “Together for Equality” project, we conducted two surveys related to the topics of gender equality and gender stereotypes. Based on predetermined questions, to which young people had the opportunity to express their agreement or disagreement on a scale, we aimed to measure opinions and attitudes towards various aspects of gender equality.
We also asked more than 2000 young people what gender equality personally means to them. We received these responses:
“Fair treatment of every person.”
“We are all humans.”
“That we are all equal regardless of our gender.”
“Equal rights for men and women.”
“Gender equality is needed for peace and harmony on Earth.”
“That women and men have equal rights and responsibilities.”
“We are all equal.”
At the same time, we sought to capture how opinions and attitudes towards gender equality topics evolve over the duration of the project.
The proportion of surveyed young people favorably perceiving gender equality increased from 64.4% at the beginning of the project to 82.78% at the end of the project.
The proportion of surveyed young people rejecting gender stereotypes increased from 51.2% at the beginning of the project to 73.6% at the end of the project.
