Discrimination is clearly a force shaping young women’s experiences of the workplace, and contributing to a persistent income gap of around a fifth between young women and young men. But to what extent is it impacting their futures?
Young Women's Trust 2023 annual survey reports on the financial and employment experiences of young women and the impact these have on their lives.
Nearly half (46%) of young women said their finances have got worse over the past year. Only 31% of young men said the same. The gap between young women and young men is widening.
Young Women's Trust analysed official labour market statistics to understand the extent of the pay differences between young women and young men.
