Abstract

From Girls to Men: social attitudes to gender equality issues in Australia is a research program hosted by the 50/50 by 2030 Foundation at the University of Canberra. The research program is distinctive in at least four ways. Firstly, it is the first research program in Australia to combine a large-scale national quantitative survey with nation-wide focus groups and big data analysis of social media activity on gender equality issues. Secondly, it studies the attitudes of boys and girls, men and women to gender issues relating to equality and empowerment. Thirdly, it investigates attitudinal patterns by generational, mainstream and diversity groups. And, fourthly, particular attention is paid to the relationship between sexual politics and gender attitudes and the role of social media in promoting gender attitudes.
