Responses to the research


Justine Roberts, founder of Mumsnet

‘The findings of this report show that there is much progress still to be made in UK gender equality.’

Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism Project

‘This is an urgent wake-up call. The results closely reflect the huge numbers of entries to the Everyday Sexism Project from girls and young women experiencing sexism and harassment on a regular basis.’

Rt Hon Maria Miller MP, Minister for Women and Equalities

‘These results [relating to high aspirations to leadership] are encouraging in that they show so many girls and young women in the UK are highly ambitious and want to get ahead in life. We need to help make sure that their aspirations become reality. Girls consistently out-perform boys at school, but this does not always translate into future success in their working lives.’ Read more responses.
