Spanish women are the most likely to consider themselves held at a disadvantage compared to their male counterparts. A study published Ipsos MORI asked women whether they agreed they had “full equality with men and freedom to reach their full dreams and aspirations”. 73% of Spanish women disagreed along with 67% of women asked in Japan. 64% of South Korean women also argued that they did not have full equality to men. China and Russia came at the bottom of the list, with only 17% and 12% disagreeing, respectively.
In another study, also published by Ipsos, Spain came at the bottom of the list when the poll asked whether people thought women were any less capable than men in the work environment. Conversely, China and Russia topped the list with 56% and 54% of those asked arguing that women were not equal to men in the working environment as well as in education.
