Half of UK women believe they will never be financially secure enough to be able to get on the property ladder, research has revealed.

The survey by Money Stuff, an interactive maths course which teaches practical number skills, also found that 95% of women did not feel they had been taught to manage their money properly when still at school.

70% of young women in the 18-24 each group admitted to having not even thought about beginning to contribute to their pension fund.

The majority of those questioned said they had either taught themselves how to manage their finances, or took advice from their parents.

    the ONLY way house prices will FALL into a bracket so 1st time buyers can afford, is for Interest rates to go UP. However can't see this EVER happening, as many home owners WILL be in arrears with their mortgages and BANKS would again LOOSE! Example I bought my 1st home for £48,000 a 2bed detached bungalow on a small development. When interest rates were 8%. 4 years later the interest rate was 2% and I sold this house for £130,000

    I'd guess there is just as many men in the same predicament, but that doesn't make such as good a headline does it ...
