Family and the daily struggle to balance work and life are the two biggest challenges for Christian women in Britain today, according to the results of a new survey.
The CPanel survey identified materialism, sexual pressures, finances and the media portrayal of women as additional challenges.
Of those surveyed, 60% said family problems were their main challenge, followed by the work/life balance at 58%.
This was followed by societal pressures at 51% and the portrayal of women in the media at 42%.
Around 15% of the women questioned regarded sexism and 20% regarded discrimination as a main challenge.
Christian men were also surveyed on their challenges. The highest ranked issue was the pressure from society to behave in certain ways at 49%.
The work/life balance was listed second at 47%, followed by issues surrounding pornography (43%) and materialism (40%).
The survey was carried out on behalf of Premier Christian Radio ahead of its Woman to Woman Conference in London on 27 October.
Maria Rodrigues-Toth, founder of the ‘Woman to Woman’ events and Premier presenter said: “Christian women in the 21st century are clearly facing the pressure of juggling family life and career, and this survey highlights that spiritual and practical strain."
