The eleventh What Women Want survey by the Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU) continues to build a longitudinal picture of issues affecting the lives of women at work.

This report, based on 2021 data, reflects women’s experience of working from home and coping during a once in a century pandemic.

The survey found that access to working from home arrangements was the issue that most women wanted the CPSU to focus on over the next twelve months. Pay increases were the second key issue that respondents thought the CPSU should be focusing on.

The results of the What Women Want survey informs the CPSU’s policies, campaigns, and industrial strategies. The report also includes information about how the CPSU has used the findings of previous reports and outcomes we have achieved in areas of interest to women.
