What Matters to Young Mums?
Our research has found that one in four young mothers in the UK has experienced discrimination when their employer found out they were pregnant. Young mums also reported being discriminated against when looking for jobs.
“It is in everyone’s interest to help young mothers who want to work. As our findings show, young mothers have a huge amount to contribute to their workplaces and many want to be financially independent and support their families. Tackling discrimination would benefit mums, businesses and the economy as a whole." - Dr Carole Easton OBE
