Nearly four in 10 young women believe they cannot cope with their lives
London – A new survey has revealed that about 36 per cent often felt that they could not cope with their lives.
According to the poll, 33 percent women believe that the pay package will never be equal; 20 percent feel that they have less respect and status in society than their moms had; almost 33 percent are less happy; and 66 percent feel they are much more prone to eating disorders and mental illness.
More than 1,000 young women aged 16 to 30 were surveyed for the poll, which is part of a year-long review that was conducted in England and Wales.
The survey also revealed that 40 per cent of women are often lonely; less than 50 percent percentage don’t know who to trust; and 25 per cent said that they felt they had nobody to turn to when they were unable to sort out their problems by themselves.
The Young Women’s Trust (YWT) research looked at qualifications, jobs, housing, health, family ties and outlook.
While nearly 60 per cent women seemed secure and in work, 42 per cent struggled with issues including lack of qualifications, difficult relationships with partners and family, debt, poverty, housing and depression. 5 per cent of women with degrees were also found to be suffering from depression and isolation.
