Downhearted girl squad

Group Of Unhappy Teens

Hundreds of thousands of European teens were asked about their health and happiness. Surprisingly, 15-year-old girls perceived themselves as being the most miserable.

The World Health Organisation survey showed that young Polish, British and French girls were among those expressing the least satisfaction with their lives. They felt their overall well-being has declined and to make matters worse, one in five even said to have poor health. Boys, on the other hand showed higher life satisfaction.

Despite recent efforts to reduce gender inequality, many young girls still remain left behind. Since adolescence is critical in determining adult behaviour, disregarding these data as mere moaning of spoiled brats, may come back to bite us down the road.
