Hundreds of men and women have taken part in a survey which aims to chart the impact of ‘everyday sexism’ in South Yorkshire.

Researchers at Sheffield University’s law school are carrying out the survey as part of a project with Meg Munn, Labour MP for Sheffield Heeley.

The findings from the survey will be publicised later this year, with the aim of bringing a change in culture and attitudes towards sexism.

Ms Munn said: “It’s great so many people have already come forward to share their experiences of everyday sexism.

“We want to make a real difference in Sheffield and send a clear message that sexism – in any form – is unacceptable.

“The more people we hear from the bigger impact we can make, so please take our survey and contribute to giving this issue wider prominence in South Yorkshire.”

The campaign has been supported by men and women who have experienced sexism.

Coun Julie Dore, Sheffield Council leader, is also backing it, and has spoken of how people often assume her job is held by a man.
