[excerpt]

Eurobarometer Survey seeks to measure Europeans' perceptions of

gender inequalities within their own country: how widespread inequalities between

women and men are, and whether the situation has improved or worsened compared

with ten years ago; whether men or women are more likely to experience such

discrimination among particular groups of people (young, old, people with disabilities,

migrants, single parents, and working parents with young children); and the areas of life

(e.g. work, school, media, politics) where gender stereotypes are deemed to be most

prevalent. It also examines Europeans’ general attitudes towards gender equality and,

more specifically, the role of women in the workplace and the role of men at home. In

terms of tackling gender inequalities, the survey provides measures on Europeans’

opinions on which organisations have contributed most over the last ten years; whether

this should be an EU priority; which areas should be dealt with most urgently; and what

measures are considered to be the most effective at increasing the number of women in

the workplace, and increasing the amount of time men spend on home care activities.

Finally, the survey explores the issue of violence against women – what Europeans think

this encompasses and which specific forms of such violence the EU should focus its

efforts on.
