Survey: The global recession – is it hitting women harder?

filed under News

To mark International Women’s Day on March 8th, PricewaterhouseCoopers are running a snap survey to assess first impressions of the impact of the global economic crisis on women’s careers and prospects, now and in the future.

Will the recession break the glass ceiling or reinforce it? Will it set equality back ten years, or put women on an equal footing for caring and pay responsibilities? Have women been more adversely affected by job cuts than men?

Or is the recession’s potential impact on women all just hype?

Click here to take the survey.

Please share your thoughts – and pass on the survey to your friends and colleagues. It will take no more than ten minutes to complete, and a report on the results will be found in the coming weeks at the PwC Gender Agenda blog.

The survey website will remain open until March 10th.
