An recently released ABC News/Refinery 29 poll shows that millennial women rank the issue of “protecting gun rights” on par with “equal pay for women” and “preserving access to abortion.”

The poll was conducted March 2-22 and was released in April.

According to the ABC News/Refinery 29, twenty-one percent of millennial women cited “student loan debt” and “economic inequality” as their two biggest issues in the upcoming presidential election. Those issues were followed by “protecting gun rights,” “equal pay for women,” and “preserving access to abortion,” all three of which received received 11 percent support regarding their importance in the upcoming election.

It is interesting to note that a majority of the millennial women also said they do not consider themselves “feminist,” and they chose Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton for president. Moreover, they said Sanders was more “inspirational” than Clinton and would prefer to go to dinner with Sanders instead of Clinton.
