Share Article

Sixty-one per cent of young women say they are not doing well in the economy right now, with nearly one in three (29%) saying they are not doing well at all. They are facing financial anxiety, stress about finding well-paying jobs, and concern about balancing their careers and personal life in the future.

The survey, “The impact of the pandemic on 18-30-year-old women in the U.S.,” and focus groups results are from the most demographically diverse cohort and were gathered by Lake Research Partners, commissioned by Wellesley College, and funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. These findings and more will be shared at an upcoming virtual summit on April 1 and 2, “The Economy She Deserves: Building an Agenda for a Women-Centered Recovery” organized by Wellesley, Spelman College, and the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at King’s College, London.
