Comparison with adults' attitudes

Young people were less likely than adults to think the various kinds of violence against women that they were asked about were very seriously wrong, or to think that they would cause a great deal of harm. In some cases, the extent to which young people appear to hold more permissive views than adults about violence against women is striking. For example, in the scenario where the man tries to stop his wife going out with her friends, 21% of young people thought that his behaviour was 'very seriously wrong', compared to 50% of adults, and 20% of young people thought this would cause her 'a great deal' of harm, compared to 30% of adults. Differences highlighted in the report are significant, unless marked with a star (*).

Comparison with adults' attitudes

Comparison with adults' attitudes

Young people and adults were equally likely to buy a small child a toy that is not traditionally associated with the child's gender, without trying to persuade them to choose another toy.
