Girls' Attitudes Survey

A snapshot of girls’ and young women’s lives

Every year we ask over 2,000 girls and young women to tell us how they feel about their everyday lives.

What they say, on the pressures they face and the issues they care about, forms the Girls' Attitudes Survey – our flagship research supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Since 2009, Girlguiding has given girls and young women a platform through this research. Now in its 13th year, the 2021 survey reveals how much the pandemic has impacted girls’ and young women’s lives – from their mental health to their aspirations for the future.
