"People want to think income means you're protected from misogyny, and sadly that's not the case," Cindy Southworth, executive vice president of the National Network to End Domestic Violence, told Thomson Reuters.

"We are going to look back and see this as a very powerful tipping point. ... We're blowing the lid off and saying '#Metoo and Time's Up,’” Southworth continued. 

Poll respondents included “aid professionals, academics, healthcare staff, non-government organization workers, policy-makers, development specialists and social commentators for the survey.” 

The survey was conducted online and via phone and in-person interviews from March 26 to May 4 across Europe, Africa, the Americas, Southeast Asia, South Asia and the Pacific.
