Women still feel inferior - survey
A new survey on SA women shows they still regard themselves as inferior to men.
CAPE TOWN - A new survey shows many South African women still regard themselves as inferior to men.
While 30 percent indicated that they are satisfied with their lives, 22 percent agreed that a woman's place is in the home.
Almost a third of male respondents believe men should have more rights to scarce jobs.
However, only 21 percent of women agreed with this statement.
Mari Harris from research company Ipsos said more than 3, 000 people participated in the study.
"18 percent of women and 22 percent of men believe that a woman's place is in the house, so we see that even woman underestimate themselves in a lot of instances."
Harris added: "In a lot of instances, to me it seems as if we went backwards in a lot of women's issues. There are more women than men looking for work, however when we compare educational standards, women and men are equally qualified."
