Today Fawcett publishes the full Sex Equality: State of the Nation 2016 report, which summarises the findings of the first stage of our poll of 8,000 people carried out by Survation.
The headlines this week have focused on men’s views of gender equality, revealing surprisingly that more men than women want equality for women, as well as our attitudes towards gender identity and the discovery of ‘hidden feminists‘ – two thirds of Brits believing in equality for men and women, but only 7% identifying as feminists.
Also published today is the timeline, documenting the progress of women’s rights in the last 150 years to mark our 150th anniversary in 2016. From political representation, to reproductive rights to violence against women, we have achieved a great deal in that time, but there is still much more to be done. – Find the full timeline here
