Survey of Americans on Gender

This Washington Post/Kaiser/Harvard University survey examines Americans’ opinions, perceptions and attitudes regarding gender and interactions between the sexes. A series of five related surveys were used to paint an up-to-date picture of gender issues in work place and on the home front, including sexual harassment, the division of household tasks, parenting roles, and the joys and challenges of marriage today. The surveys find that the rules of the game are changing, both at work and at home, but increased gender equality brings both gains and challenges for men and women today. The findings were presented by The Washington Post in a five part series, beginning Sunday, March 22, 1998.
