Member survey on gender equality

The WI wants to understand more about how gender equality and its progress is perceived among members, so that it can be highlighted during International Women’s Day. To do this, a short survey has been developed for members to take.

The survey will take no more than 5 minutes to complete, is completely anonymous and is a great way to share how you are experiencing the fight for gender equality. The findings will be used in future campaigning work.

The survey is for WI members and is open until Sunday 26 February.

Take the survey here.

Please share the survey with other members who might want to share their views.
