Welcome to the #YouToo? survey

Did you receive an invitation letter with a unique access code? If so, click here.

Over the past two years, there has been a lot of talk about sexism, sexual harassment, equality or inequality between women and men. You have undoubtedly heard of it by now and probably have your own opinion on the matter.

Now we'd like to know what you think. What do you think are the differences between women and men? How important are equal opportunities to you? How should people behave? What do you think needs to be done? What are your personal experiences? What's sexy, and what definitely isn't?

By filling out this questionnaire you can help us gather information and opinions while reflecting on what you yourself think about it. Our only request is that you try to answer as honestly as possible.


The questionnaire is strictly confidential. The answers cannot be linked to you personally. They are only used to carry out general analyses and learn something about how people in our country feel about a number of things.

Completing the whole questionnaire takes approximately 30 minutes. You can shorten the questionnaire by skipping topics.

The questionnaire can be completed in English, Dutch or French.

Are you male or female?

The questionnaire is the same for everyone.

  • About the content of the questionnaire
  • The questions are about your opinion about how people should interact with each other and about your experiences. The themes covered are the street, your work, the media, home, your relationship, appearance and sexuality. At the end there is also a section on reporting violence to the police.

    Please take your time to answer the questions correctly. The more you fill in, the more useful it is, but you can skip parts if you find it getting too long.

  • About the survey
  • We would like to know how people in Belgium feel about equality and inequality between women and men and how they deal with sexism. Sexism is a big word, but it can also be about little things and everyday experiences. At the same time it also includes various forms of violence. The aim of the research is to investigate how often sexism occurs and how people deal with it.

  • About the Institute for the equality of women and men
