affected by job insecurity, money worries and debt.

The facts

Our report, based on our annual Populus Data Solutions poll of more than 4,010 18-30 year-olds in England and Wales and 1,105 54-72 year olds in England and Wales shows that:

  • Millions of young women are being let down in workplace
  • More than a quarter of young women say their financial situation has got worse in the past year
  • Young women’s mental health concerns are skyrocketing
  • Sexual harassment is still not being dealt with
  • Employers are ignoring gender pay gaps.
  • Gender discrimination is rife
  • Women bear the brunt of low pay, with debt levels increasing
  • Equality is a long way off but there is still hope of achieving it.
