Equality still eludes some

19/09/2008

More than a third of women questioned in a Research New Zealand poll  believe they don’t have equal rights.

It found that 34 per cent of women still did not believe they had equal rights with men while only 16 per cent of men believed that women did not have equal rights.

However, the poll found that overall, 72 per cent of those interviewed believed that men and women shared equal rights.

Equality isn’t achieved just by enshrining rights in law it’s also requires a change of attitude and it may be easier to enact the former than to achieve the latter with some people.
