More than 8,000 people were asked
A women’s rights charity says its survey explains why violence against women happens and the gender pay gap.
More than 8,000 people were asked: “If a woman goes out late, in a short skirt, gets drunk and falls victim to a sex assault, is she totally or partly to blame?”
The results showed 38 per cent of men and 34 per cent of women said the woman is at fault.
Forteen per cent of men aged 18 to 24 said a scantily clad girl was "totally to blame"
We need sex and relationships education in schools
Fourteen per cent of men aged 18 to 24 said a scantily clad drunk girl was “totally to blame”.
Women over 65 were among the most likely to blame the girl, with 55 per cent saying she was totally or partly at fault.
The report was from the Fawcett Society
The report was from the Fawcett Society on the eve of Saturday’s London Women’s March.
One in five of men aged 25 to 34 said women’s equality had “gone too far” and 17 per cent fear gender equality would make men worse off.
The society’s Sam Smethers said: “We need sex and relationships education in schools.”
