In India, Millennials and Gen Z are becoming increasingly vocal and expressive about their stance on inclusivity and equal rights. Several industries and companies, including dating apps, are supporting these causes too. When it comes to women’s rights and gender parity, people across age groups are speaking up on why it is a necessary part of evolving societies. A recent Bumble India report on gender equality revealed that 86 per cent of single Indians believe that women's equality is an essential deciding factor while dating someone, and as many as 72 per cent believe in equality of rights.
According to the app’s findings, about 30 per cent of single Indians say they won’t date someone who doesn’t believe in gender equality and women’s rights. Single Indians, particularly the Gen-Z, believe in the importance of equal pay and want to have conversations around these topics with their potential partners. As many as 53 per cent of single people claim equal pay is an important consideration when they choose to date someone.
“As we evolve collectively as a society, it’s hopeful to see how today millennials and GenZ in India are looking to connect with someone for whom issues such as gender equality, fighting sexism, and equal pay are a priority in forming meaningful relationships. As per our recent study, more single Indians are likely to talk openly about equal pay and women’s rights with their partners and are unlikely to date someone who is sexist”, shared Samarpita Samaddar, Communications Director, Bumble India.
