Excerpted from key findings:

Gender-based violence were ranked as the most important issues facing women and girls: sexual harassment (29%), sexual violence (25%) and domestic abuse (23%) were considered the top issues.

One in three people (35%) around the world believe childcare responsibilities can damage a woman’s career more than a man’s, and one in three women also say caring responsibilities have impacted their careers (31%).

Women are more likely to perceive institutional gender bias than men, with educational and healthcare institutions perceived as the most equal – 52% considered that these treat women and men the same.
