Attitudes to Gender I  Public Survey

Our public opinion survey Attitudes to Gender was open from October to December 2018 to anyone over the age of 18.  It asked respondents about their opinions on the significance of gender, including the categories of female/male in everyday life, and views on whether the law should be reformed so that infants are no longer legally declared female/male at birth.

The survey had three sections: Section 1 asked respondents to provide information about themselves; Section 2 focused on gender in everyday life; and Section 3 asked about their attitudes towards how the law assigns gender.

We had 3101 responses to the survey.
