Women lose out at work

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -


Nearly a third of Bri­tish women say they have lost out on earn­ings be­cause of their gen­der, a study re­vealed yes­ter­day.

They claim they have suf­fered ca­reer set­backs and a loss of con­fi­dence be­cause of stereo­typ­ing in the work­place.

Al­most one fifth of women (18 per cent) be­lieve their ca­reer has suf­fered be­cause of their gen­der – a feel­ing strong­est among those in Scot­land (15 per cent) and Lon­don (16 per cent).

Thirty per cent told the Avon UK poll they have missed out on earn­ings po­ten­tial, with nearly a quar­ter (23 per cent) feel­ing they could not even work in a cer­tain job.
