The percentage of U.S. adults who say they are to some degree dissatisfied with how women are being treated is mired near a previous record low, according to a Gallup poll published Thursday.

The poll showed 54 percent of respondents reported being satisfied with the treatment of women this year, nearly matching the previous record of 53 percent set in 2018, when the #MeToo movement began gaining steam.

When broken down by gender, 62 percent of men and 46 percent of women reported being satisfied with the treatment of women.

The poll also found that 80 percent of Republican women were satisfied with how they were being treated compared to 26 percent of Democratic women. Both findings were within 1 percentage point of the previous survey in 2018. 

Black women were also less likely than white women to be satisfied with how they were being treated, 35 percent to 47 percent.

The poll was conducted June 8 through July 24 among a sample of 1,226 adults and reported a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
