Female engineers in the UK are still facing unequal treatment and unacceptable behaviour in the workplace, according the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

The Stay or go? The experience of female engineers in early career report found that 63% of the women in engineering surveyed experienced unacceptable behaviour or comments. 

Meanwhile, four in 10 said they were not treated equally and six in 10 said it was easier for men to progress in their careers.
