Fifty-eight percent see improvement in women's rights

[Johannesburg, 11 August 2014] - About a fifth of women (21%) still believe that boys have more rights to education than girls, and 23% believe when jobs are scarce, men have more rights to jobs than women. There is also a significant proportion 34% of both men and women that believes women should be kept in their place. Over a fifth of women (22%) believe their place is in the house with 27% of men agreeing with this sentiment.

However, 58% of South Africans believe there has been a great improvement in the area of women's rights in the last 20 years, with women and men showing the same levels of agreement.

These are some of the prominent findings from a Pulse of the People survey conducted by Ipsos during March and April 2014. Face-to-face interviews were conducted with a randomly selected representative sample of 3 730 adult South Africans from all walks of life.
