Our survey on Attitudes to Gender is now closed (midnight, 5 December 2018).  Thank you to everyone who took part.  We have had over 3,000 responses.  

About the survey

Our public opinion survey on Attitudes to Gender explores whether people should have a female/male legal status assigned at birth and how we could change the way that female/male and other gender categories are used in UK law.

The survey asks for your experiences of gender in everyday life, your opinions about the significance of the legal categories of female/male, and also asks for your views on how the law might change if the female/male status was different or not assigned to people.

The survey is open to anyone over the age of 18.  We are particularly interested in the views of people who live in the UK, but if you live elsewhere we are still interested in your views.

Further involvement

We are looking for a cross-section of people who have filled in this survey to participate in further stages of this research project – recording aspects of your life when gender is relevant, and being interviewed.  If you live in England or Wales and would be willing to consider participating further in the Future of Legal Gender project, please contact the research team at with ‘Participate’ in the subject line.
