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.
