If you please, here is a survey on whether you feel sexism against women is still an issue in the United States of America. If you decide to take this survey I greatly appreciate it. If not, that fine as well.

I just took your survey and I love the way you created this discussion. I like how you are trying to get results in where everyone thinks sexism against women is most prevalent. I like how you can speak your mind without anyone thinking of you differently and this is exactly how you can do it. I hope you make more surveys in the future and you are on the right track to discovering something big. Keep up the good work. Here’s an article I found about sexism against women in the work place you might like: https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2016/09/27/lean-in-study-women-in-the-workplace/91157026/

I just took your survey and I think that this is a great idea. I bet it’s very interesting because you will be able to see both sides of the spectrum. Personally, I do believe that sexism still exists. The wage gap is still a major problem, women are extremely under represented in politics among many other problems that women still face today. On the last question I found myself struggling to answer just one of the bubbles because sexism is prominent in many of those categories. I’m very interested to see the conclusion of your survey.

I just took your survey and as i was taking it, i had a pose for sec to think of where sexism is still prevalent and I couldn’t get an exact answer. For me, sexism is everywhere and although it is not everyone who exercise the same ideology,we can still fill the presence of it. I read this articles https://www.theodysseyonline.com/sexism-in-todays-society which emphasis my thought and how sexism leads to inequality and male dominated society. I would loved to know the result of this survey to see how many people still think its a problem even in today’s world.

Moiranda, I just took your survey, I really like how you are using this project as an opportunity to do some research of your own, that you can then compare to the research that others have done. It will be a really interesting way to portray this issue. I am very interested to see what the results of your survey will be, and look forward to seeing how you develop your findings into this research project!

This was an interesting way to collect data for your research. I do believe that there is sexism in our world today, but especially in the workplace. This is shown in the pay gaps between men and women, since men continually make more than women even though they are doing the same amount of work for the same amount of time. This article from AAUW, http://www.aauw.org/research/the-simple-truth-about-the-gender-pay-gap/ , goes into great detail about pay gap, projected and present. It even shows the state by state difference. Here is another article from the Huffington Post that goes into more occupational sexism and facts about it, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/20/sexist-workplace_n_2718249.html.
Thank you for taking the time to research this, and I hope some of the information in the links helps.

Moiranda, I just took your survey and I think what you’re doing is very interesting. I think it’s important to see how and where people see sexism especially in our age group (I mean, the site is called youth voices). I like how you said sexism and didn’t split it up and only ask about women in relation to sexism. If you think about it, sexism effects both males and females. There are stereotypes for both genders and they effect both. I think it’s cool to get perspectives from both sides of the issue (or non-issue depending on what other’s think). I really want to know what your results are! If you need a place to start your research, https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/03/23/everyone-is-sexist-internalized-sexism/99528476/ might be a good place to tart, it’s a little skewed, but when approaching this topic, most resources are.

I think it was a great idea to put a survey in as your research, as you are doing your own research. I think that sexism still does exist, especially, in the workplace. Here is an article by Business Insider that discusses the wage gap between men and women. http://www.businessinsider.com/gender-wage-pay-gap-charts-2017-3/#the-gender-wage-gap-varies-widely-depending-on-the-state-1 Let me know what you think of the article and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Among my peers/ in my school this seems to be a very popular topic for debate. I think it is very interesting that you are researching this, and I would be fascinated to see what you find; not only through the survey, but also through your other sources. I decided to search this topic and I found these articles https://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2016/sep/02/unconscious-bias-most-women-believe-sexism-still-exists-but-most-men-disagree
I hope you find this helpful.

Moiranda, I think you picked an excellent topic to dive deeper into. I liked how you made it interactive and wanted to see your viewers opinion. I found an article that elaborates on sexism today to form background knowledge. https://www.theodysseyonline.com/sexism-in-todays-society
What made you compelled to pick this topic? Please post the results I am interested to see.

September 28, 2017 10:20 pm

I didn’t know you could post a survey on this sight and I am so glad that you did. Im glad you picked this issue to analyze, I hope to see results and an article on the issue soon! Please keep pressing the issue of sexism. I am fascinated to not only hear some startling proof of sexism but also the results of your survey telling me what people think about it.

September 28, 2017 7:50 pm

Please post your results, I’m interested to see what people had to say.

September 28, 2017 4:32 pm

I just did your survey. I just want to say I really like what you are discovering here. I think it will be interesting to see how many people believe sexism still exists. In my opinion, it does in many aspects of our country. However I know many people who are afraid to admit they are a feminist or against sexism issues because they are worried about what other people will say. This survey allows people to come out about what they believe, but in a somewhat anonymous way. This may help us change this problem in the future. I hope you do more survey’s!! I really like your idea and passion about this issue. Here is a link I liked. It includes some statistics of where sexism exists most in the world. https://unstats.un.org/unsd/gender/vaw/
