BBC: Kun få danske kvinder er feminister

Kun 22% af danske kvinder identificere sig selv som feminister. Og feminisme er mest fremtrædende i den veluddannede, øvre middelklasse.

Det skriver  BBC i Why so many young women don't call themselves feminist. (Dr Christina Scharff, King's College London)

Mens stort set alle går ind for lighed mellem de to køn, er der i intet af de undersøgte lande (ikke engang Sverige), flere end halvdelen af kvinderne, der vil betegne sig selv som feminister.


Dr. Scharff har også prøvet at finde ud af, hvorfor så få kvinder ikke vil kalde sig selv feminister. Hun tilskriver problemet "fejlopfattelser" af, hvad en feminist er:

Having interviewed a diverse group of young German and British women for my research, I found associations of the term "feminism" with man-hating, lesbianism or lack of femininity was a key factor in rejections of the label "feminist".

The majority said they did not want to call themselves feminist because they feared they would be associated with these traits. This was despite many stressing they were not homophobic and some identifying as lesbian or bisexual.
