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.
2,000 respondents in the UK were surveyed.
Most of the women quizzed said that they believed financial independence was important, but only 39% thought they were saving enough of their salary.
