Around 36 percent women feel they cannot cope with their lives, a new survey revealed.
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 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.
