Gender equality: How Urban India views women in society
Even with broad support for gender equality, a significant portion of Urban India believes that women are responsible for child-rearing, shows data
Mumbai: From the boardroom to the sports field, Indian women are making a mark in traditionally male-dominated areas and redefining their roles in society. Most urban Indian millennial netizens, including men, seem to approve of these changes, according to data collected by market researcher YouGov in collaboration with Mint. However, the survey also suggests that this support may be slightly superficial. A significant portion of men are reluctant to share responsibilities—child-rearing, in particular—at home, making it difficult for women to work outside homes.
