Men and women in the United States generally agree on many of the personal qualities and competencies they see as essential for political and business leaders to have. But there are notable differences in the importance they ascribe to some of those qualities, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.
About nine-in-ten women (91%) say it’s essential that those in top executive business positions provide fair pay and good benefits, a view shared by 77% of men. Women are also 14 points more likely than men to say it’s essential that business leaders consider the impact of business decisions on society (72% vs. 58%).
