  • Women aged 35 and older earn only about 75% as much as their male counterparts.
  • As women more often leave their careers to care for children or elderly parents, it is estimated that they will be away from the work force for 14 years, as compared to just under 2 years for men.As many as 9 out of 10 women will be solely responsible for their finances at some point in their life.
  • 47% of women over 50 are single.
  • 50% of marriages end in divorce. In the first year after a divorce, a woman’s standard of living drops 73%.
  • 80% of widows now living in poverty were not poor before the death of their husband.
  • Approximately 7 out of 10 women will, at some time, live in poverty.
  • 90% of women feel financially insecure, despite controlling more wealth, having more education and being more involved with financial decisions.
