YWCA USA commissioned a 2012 survey of nearly 1,500 adult women nationwide with Lake Research Partners and pollster Celinda Lake and the polling company, inc./WomanTrend and pollster Kellyanne Conway. The survey was conducted in late August and early September; it is an encore study to the original What Women Want 2008 Survey, also commissioned by the YWCA.
The results offer a revealing look at what’s on women’s minds and what concerns they have in this key election year. We found that 80 percent of women, across all divides and regardless of political affiliation, agree on 80 percent of the issues.
On September 29, 2012 Celinda and Kellyanne presented the survey’s results to participants at the 2012 What Women Want Town Meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio. Read highlights and media coverage from the day’s discussion, view photos and learn more.
