A new survey suggests one in 20 women take illegal drugs to get through the working day.

The online survey of 1000 New Zealand females aged over 15, carried out by Nielsen for Next magazine, found Wellington was a hotspot for working women using drugs, the magazine said.

A significant number of women also said they knew people who were using narcotics.

The survey also found only 5 per cent of women believed equality was a complete reality.

A large proportion of those questioned thought men had easier lives than women, while a significant number said they had experienced discrimination in the workplace.
