Millennial Women, More Than Older Women, Think Men Have It Easier

Gender equality is an on-going issue in the U.S. and a new survey reveals generational differences in perceptions of how women are really doing in this country. Pew Research Center questioned over 4,500 respondents about U.S. efforts towards gender equality. Eighty-two percent of all respondents said it’s very important for women to have equal rights, and millennial women were significantly more likely than other generations to say men have greater advantages than women. Also, 69 percent of Democrats expressed dissatisfaction with the progress the U.S. has made toward equality, while only 26 percent of Republicans said the same. Another notable find: 43 percent of women said they’ve experienced discrimination or unequal treatment because of their gender; 18 percent of men said the same. (FiveThirtyEight)¬†
