BBC 100 Women: What is working life like for UK women today?

A vast majority (84%) of women agree that is it harder for women than men to have a successful career and raise a family, according to a ComRes survey for BBC Radio 5 live looking at working life for women in the UK today.

The survey, commissioned as part of the BBC's 100 Women season, also shows women are less confident to apply for a promotion or ask for a pay rise.

ComRes surveyed 2,083 UK adults for BBC Radio 5 live.

Our 100 Women season showcases three weeks of inspirational stories about 100 influential and inspirational women around the world . We create documentaries, features and interviews, giving more space for stories that put women at the centre.
