Women represent 51% of the population but just 21% of the transport workforce in the UK.

Nearly 40% of public transport journeys throughout the world are mobility of care journeys. Women make up 80% of people in charge of mobility of care and most of these women use sustainable modes either walking or using public transport. (Source: diamond-project.eu)
