The Telegraph 30 June 2014
Almost one in four British women believe their main role in life is to be a good wife and mother, an international study has found.
Women in the UK are almost as likely as men to hold a traditional view on the role of the sexes, it shows.
New global polling by Ipsos MORI found that British people are less traditionalist overall on the issue of gender than Americans, Germans or Australians but substantially more so than those in many other European countries including France, Spain, Italy and Sweden.
British women are just as likely to see their role in traditional terms as their counterparts in Turkey.
More than 16,000 people in 20 countries were polled as part of a survey of attitudes to a range of social issues to be published later this year.
