Young women are consistently more likely than young men to encounter money problems, workplace discrimination, health problems and low confidence.
This is according to the Young Women’s Trust Annual Survey 2017, in September 2017.
A representative sample of 4,010 18-30 year olds in England and Wales were surveyed.
The report finds that:
- One in three of young women aged 25-30 (32%) said that their financial situation probably means they will have to put off having children
- 65% of young women compared to 56% of young men said they would be put off applying for a job if they didn’t meet all the criteria
- 34% of young women and 29% of young men said that they felt more anxious than 12 months ago
- 75% of young women and 58% of young men said that women still face discrimination in the workplace.
