The following is the Analysis on the status quo of equal rights between men and women under the epidemic situation From Ipsos recommended by recordtrend.com. And this article belongs to the classification: Life data, Ipsos.
In 2020, various gender related issues will be widely discussed. In China, the controversy caused by Yang Li reflects the escalation of the antagonism between men and women. Looking around the world, the “room n” incident in South Korea has exposed the crime of sexual exploitation to us. The economic losses caused by COVID-19, the stoppage of production and the increase in unemployment rate also made the advancement of the gender equality agenda particularly difficult. Anita Bhatia, deputy executive director of UN women, sighs: “all the efforts we have made in the past 25 years may be lost within one year.”
What changes have taken place in the global issue of gender equality under the epidemic situation? What are the new features of China? On the occasion of International Women’s day, Ipsos once again joined hands with the Global Institute for women’s leadership of King’s College London to jointly investigate the situation of gender equality in 28 countries and regions around the world.
Gender equality is an eternal topic in the development of global civilization. What changes have taken place in global gender equality under the epidemic situation? What are the new features of gender equality in China? Ipsos once again joined hands with King’s College London to conduct a survey on the situation of equal rights between men and women in 28 countries and regions around the world.
Gender income gap is real and very important
According to the global gender gap report 2020 issued by the world economic forum at the end of 2019, the gender gap in the economic field is widening due to various reasons, such as the long-term low proportion of women in management or leadership positions, stagnant wages, low labor force participation and income level, etc. With the outbreak and continuous impact of the epidemic in 2020, women’s situation is facing more challenges.
The results of Ipsos research highlight that the epidemic situation is not in direct proportion to women’s pay and return. There are differences on whether narrowing the gender income gap should be the top priority. About 42% of the people think that narrowing the gender income gap is very important, but it should not be the top priority. And 36% of the people think that this should be one of the key directions of the country. In fact, women see this as a priority more than men.
Providing more flexible work (40%) and supporting women and children facing violence and abuse (36%) is the key to ensuring the solution of women’s problems and recovering from COVID-19. The proportion of medical services, social assistance (such as cash, food support, unemployment, health care, nursing, etc.) and investment in entrepreneurial projects accounted for 33%, 30% and 29% respectively.
Is “women’s work” not equal to pay?
Ipsos research shows that the pay of men’s occupations is characterized by two levels of differentiation. People believe that politicians, bankers and engineers earn too much, while construction workers, police and couriers earn very little. At the same time, childcare, nursing and other care jobs and salesmen in the care industry are considered to be mainly done by women with low pay.
Specifically, 82% of the people who provide child care services, such as nurseries and nannies, are mainly women, and 55% of the people think their work pay is too low. 68% of the people think that nursing is mainly composed of women (compared with 25% who think that the proportion of men and women in the nursing industry is equal), and 59% think that they are paid too little.
Under the epidemic situation, are men and women more equal?
As markets gradually recover from the epidemic, about half (52%) believe that gender equality will return to pre epidemic levels. People have different opinions on whether gender equality will progress or decline.
11% thought that women would become as equal as men, while the same proportion (11%) thought that women would become less equal. On this point, women are slightly more pessimistic than men. 13% of women say that their level of equality with men will be reduced, while only 9% of men think so.
44% said they were more likely to worry about unemployment than they were before the outbreak. Among those most likely to worry about unemployment in China, 40% are men and 20% are women.
When relatives or friends made sexist remarks, 74.8% of the women said they would condemn. Among the women who would not or would not condemn according to the situation, about 60% (63.5%) thought that the other side had no bad thoughts (data source: Ipsos x microblog)| But when the top management of the company made sexist remarks, the proportion of women (26.9%) who looked at the situation increased.
After the outbreak, people will spend more time with their families
37% said they were more likely to spend less time at work and more time with their families than before the outbreak. It is worth noting that nearly half of the people (45%) in China say that they have not changed much from before the epidemic. Among those who may change, 39% are men and 24% are women. This shows that the epidemic has made men more aware of the importance of family responsibility.
Promoting gender equality may be the “longest revolution”, but it is not only about women’s respect and rights, but also about men’s freedom and well-being. We need to maintain hope and action.
