Only 31% of young women in APAC believe they conform to gender stereotypes

A new research from YouGov found that less than half of young people across APAC believe they conform to gender stereotypes. According to the findings, on a scale of 0-10 (where 0 is completely masculine and 10 is completely feminine), under a third of women (31%) aged 16-29 say they are almost entirely feminine (at level 9 or 10), while nearly half (49%) of women over 45 do.

The divide is also apparent in men; with 39% of 16-29 year old males across the region define themselves as either completely masculine (0) or near-completely masculine (1). In comparison, 56% of over-45 males share the same sentiment.
