2012 Girls’ Attitudes Survey launch
Girlguiding has launched our 2012 Girls’
Attitudes Survey, which gives a fascinating insight into the
thoughts and opinions of girls and young women aged 7 to 21.
This major survey, now in its fourth year, explores girls’ views on
a range of issues of topical interest, enabling Girlguiding to
discover what motivates and inhibits them, and the ways in which
they respond to the pressures of everyday life.
This year’s survey continues to build on findings from previous
years, tracking changes that have occurred over time and
questioning deeper into the same topic areas, as well as asking
about the impact of recent events.
It goes beyond the members of Girlguiding as part a
comprehensive overview which can contribute to external as well as
internal policy. This year, for the first time, we have included a
sample of boys’ attitudes; an exciting development that gives us
useful points of comparison across the subject areas.
The first survey was launched at the start of Girlguiding’s
Centenary year in 2009, with the aim of finding out what matter in
the lives of young women and how they see the world today.
