International Women’s Day – Interesting Survey!

First off all, Happy Women’s Day!

Although women head governments, run companies and comprise about half the world’s workforce, a global poll shows that one in four people, most of them young, believe a woman’s place is in the home.  The survey of over 24,000 adults in 23 countries, conducted by Reuters/Ipsos and released on the eve of International Women’s Day, showed that people from India (54 percent), Turkey (52 percent), Japan (48 percent), China, Russia, Hungary (34 percent each) and South Korea (33 percent) were most likely to agree that women should not work.

 And, perhaps surprisingly, people aged between 18 and 34 years are most likely to hold that view, not those from the older, and more traditional, generation.

However, the majority, or 74 percent, of those polled believe a woman’s place is certainly not at home..

What do you think?
