What do men in SWPA think about #MeToo?
The #MeToo movement has exposed the scope and scale of harassment and abuse in the lives of women. We wanted to know what men think about this, a year into the #MeToo movement. So, we asked them. The public poll was conducted Sept. 24 – 29 by Change Research, a public benefit corporation. More than 1,300 men, 671 in a 10-county area of Southwestern Pennsylvania and 633 nationally, were interviewed.
Here’s a look at some of the findings:
81% of men in southwest PA say it’s important to believe women who speak publicly about their experience with harassment and abuse.
77% believe that “expectations for men’s behavior towards women have changed.”
38% of men are willing to intervene if they witness or find out about abuse or harassment.
