Denmark has ranked as one of the least feminist countries in the western world following a global poll of 23 countries.
The Scandinavian nation, which is deemed by people as a leading force in equal rights, has surprised many after it was revealed that a mere one in six Danes believed themselves to be a feminist.
The study of more than 25,000 people also showed that a third of Danes also believed that wolf-whistling at women was acceptable.
The project, conducted by the YouGov-Cambridge Globalism Project in partnership with The Guardian, also found the country fell behind Italy and Spain, countries believed to be lagging behind Denmark in terms of gender equality, when it came to identifying as a feminist.
It also found that only two in five people within the country supported the #MeToo movement.
Accountant and Danish citizen Helene Frost Hansen, 37, told The Guardian: 'It's a difficult question. What is a modern feminist? I don't want to be equal in all senses.'
