An international survey conducted by Mazars and WoMen'Up analyses the perspectives of men from 60 nationalities on evolving male/female relations.
In many countries, the 20th century has come to be known as the century of wo¬men’s emancipation. A century of conquest has propelled women into top positions in political, economic and intellectual circles. Around the globe, women are entering the workforce in vast numbers, filling jobs that were once reserved for men. In some countries, there still lies a gap between men and women, especially with respect to equality and access to education. However small-scale initiatives are emerging.
Although gender diversity has not yet been fully achieved, Generation Y women are by far the most independent and liberated women of all time: access to health care, to education, to jobs... and some have reached powerful positions! The road is still long but it has been clearly marked.
This point was acknowledged by 89% of the men who participated in our study. They understand the extent to which the women’s role has evolved in their country.
However, 9% of them believe that women have gained too much headway... A result that begs the question of men’s place in women’s conquests. Is progress being made too quickly? Are women too ambitious? Have they gone one step too far? What assessment can we draw up today of the progress that has been made in terms of the woman’s place in society? Which spheres have been established? Which spheres must be challenged? If the woman’s place in society has effectively changed, what about the role of men?
These are the questions that Mazars and WoMen’Up decided to ask 750 generation Y men of 60 different nationalities. The survey is available in English and in French. Discover the key figures of the survey in the video below.
Mazars is participating to the Women’s Forum
For the 7th consecutive year, Mazars is a partner of the Women’s Forum which takes place in Deauville from 16th to 18th October 2013. Following the success of their previous survey “The Y Revolution?”, Mazars and WoMen’Up are launching a new international survey focusing on men, aiming to understand their perspectives on this world of newly empowered women, as well as on the evolution of the men/women relationships.
