More British than Spanish believe that - 'A Womans Place is in the Home'

In Great Britain 22% of the population agree with the statement whilst in Spain only 12%.

Looking on the positive side it idicates that 88% of the Spanish did not agree with the statement whilst it is only 78% in Great Britain, both of which are above the 74% average for the World.

The countries with higher percentages of citizens who are in disagreement with the statement are Argentina, France and Mexico, each reaching 91% with Sweden and Brazil attaining 90% each. The Germans with 86%, the Belgians 84%, the Polish 82% and the Italians coming in at 81%, are close to the Spanish, but all way ahead of the British.

At the other end of the scale are countries like Hungary (34%), Russia (34%), China (34%), Japan (48%), India (54%) and Turkey (54%) are those which people are more in agreement that a woman's place is in the home.

John Wright, senior vice president of Ipsos said

The survey was carried out in 23 Countries and included 24,000 adults over the age of 18.
