Aussie girls yearning for equal treatment

October 11, 2017

A survey of more than 1700 Aussie girls has discovered most feel they are treated unequally to boys.

Equality seems a long way off for Australia's girls, with a survey showing most feel they are treated unfairly at home, school and in the media.

Plan International surveyed more than 1700 Aussie girls aged between 10 and 17 about their experiences of inequality and discovered 98 per cent believed they were unfairly treated compared to boys.

The survey found that confidence levels among girls drops after they turn 10, with many also concerned about being scrutinised based on their looks rather than their abilities and talents.
