Kantar Public conducted an online survey with a sample of 1,204 Australians aged 16 and over, including representation from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, culturally and linguistically diverse communities, people with disabilities, LGBTIQ and in metro and regional areas.

The survey showed that all respondents think it is common for females to be treated unfairly and/or without respect in a range of settings, indicating that sexism, gender discrimination and gender inequality are widespread problems in Australia.

The survey also highlighted that a worrying number of respondents still have problematic attitudes around gender stereotypes, women’s roles and gender equality. But the good news is that a large majority of respondents think incidences of sexism, gender discrimination and gender equality are concerning and people want advice about how to speak up against these types of situations.
