Fawcett Society – Sounds Familiar? report

The Fawcett Society produced a report, ‘Sounds Familiar?‘ on the particular challenges faced by young women in society in January 2017.

The report noted that younger women felt more empowered to stand up for their rights and were more likely to be university educated than in previous generations.  But pervasive gender norms, stereotypes, persistent harassment, and lad culture were holding young women back.

New analysis of national survey data revealed that some groups of younger men (those aged 18-24 and 25-34), in particular, were more likely to hold hostile or negative views towards equality.
