Totally wasted. The crisis of young women’s worklessness

woman-424245_640

The number of people in England not in education, employment or training (NEET) is high. However, despite common assumptions about who is NEET, there are many more women than men in this position, and this has been the case for more than a decade. Women are NEET for longer and the impact is deeper.

Contrary to popular assumptions only 1/4 women who are NEET are mothers, but those who, are face even more barriers to working.
