Women and politics

Hey, guys! *waves*

Some of you may remember that I've mentioned that I have a project called " Frauen in der Politik" . It's for a very important exam and I decided to do a survey about it. It concerns the equality of women and men in today's society and since it's a german project, the questions are translated in both languages.
I still haven't launched it. Here's a preview. Please, tell me if there any mistakes. I would be very glad if you could help me out with this. You could spread the news around.

ETA: I will launch the survey tonight. 8 P.M. 7 P.M. Eastern European time.

I had a quick look at the English. Some points you might like to tweak:

In the second sentence of your introduction you use "i" for the first person; it should be "I" - it is always capitalised in English.

In Question 3 the wording in English is a touch stilted: "Do you think there is a difference in the way we talk about men and women in politics? Do you consider them to be equal in this field? (Also, should this really be two questions for ease of collating data later?)

In Question 5 "in your book" jars a little - it seems a little informal. "Who do you think were/are..." might be more appropriate, I think.

Otherwise the survey is neat, simple and should get you the right sort of data. I wonder if you would find it useful to have a specific question about the national identity of your respondents, though, and possibly ask whether women are more or less likely to be demonised by their opponents.

Hope this nit-picking helps. Good luck!

Ah, thanks for the "i". Very stupid mistake there. I often forget to capitalise it.

I changed the 3rd one. The questions are kind of the same so I left them in that way.

I thought so too for "in my book". I love the expression, though but I corrected it.

Thanks so much for these suggestions! I'll definitely add these two. Neat! Thanks so much!

While "ich" isn't capitalized, "I" always is.

Yes, thanks. I know that. Very stupid mistake there. *blush*

Well, when writing in German, I need constantly to remind myself that all nouns are capitalized, which isn't true in English.

It's confusing. I used to write all of the Ichs with a capital letter. Then I realised I shouldn't and started writing all of the Is wrong. lol

Nothing to add to what people already said. The survey is simple and to the point. :)

Thanks. Only a few more minutes and I'll launch it! I'm excited :)

I'll be happy to take it whenever you launch it! I'll set up a tab for it, okay?

Thank you, hun! I've launched it a few minutes ago.

P.s I filled out yours today. I was in a hurry but I managed to answer most of the questions.
