"According to the survey, respondents have a clear idea of gender stereotypes in society and also identified areas where women are under-employed."
Is the sentence correct or it needs the subject pronoun "they" after "and" in the second clause?
and another question:
"Also, 43.8% of the respondents think that the local population, especially women, are not involved in discussing gender issues and drafting a policy document, which is a problem for a significant part of the respondents (80%)."
'are not involved in discussing gender issues and drafting a policy document'
can this predicate be replaced by "are not involved in the discussion of gender issues and the drafting of a policy document"? Which is more proper?
Thanks for help.
