Les discriminations entre les hommes et les femmes au prisme de l'opinion

    This paper shows, from an opinion poll on the Perception of inequality and feelings of justice (PISJ 2009), how inequalities and discriminations between men and women are perceived in France. On the whole, these inequalities are judged important and totally unacceptable ? and this opinion is rather consensual between men and women. The feeling of discrimination because of her sex, however, is very marked, as might be expected: it is primarily women in top and bottom of the social ladder who claim to be victims. Despite this, there is no consensus on the interpretation of these inequalities. It appears clearly four opinion groups: the first group accepts gender inequality as the consequence of a natural order; the second neglects it for the same reasons; the third denounces gender stereotypes in the name of emancipation and, finally, the last, equally critical of the actual sexual order, seeks the best arrangement. JEL classification codes: J16, A14.
