Washington, DC - Ipsos latest release on attitudes about feminism and
women's rights is now available.
- Almost a quarter of Americans believe men are more capable of doing things in society,
such as working, earning money, believing educated and teaching than women (22%). This
number is especially high among American business owners (47%).
- Similarly, 26% of American respondents under 35 years old believe women are inferior to
men, compared to 17% who agree among all American respondents.
- Unsurprisingly, close to three quarters of Americans believe there is currently an inequality
between women and men in terms of social, political and/or economic rights in the US (72%).
- Only three fifths of American respondents say they advocate and support equal
opportunities for women, including actually speaking up and out to change things for women
in the US (60%).
For the results of the survey presented herein, a sample of 1,001 adults
aged 18-64 in the US January 20th and February 3rd, 2017. The precision of Ipsos online
