Description

Money gives us freedom.

It gives us choices . . .

But why is it women are nearly always poorer than men?

The modern world is rigged unfairly in men's favour. From pensions to the tampon tax, bearing children to boardroom bullying, Why Women Are Poorer Than Men shows how society conspires to limit women's wealth.

  • Did you know that the NHS spends more on Viagra than helping single mother families eat healthily?

  • Or, that women are the majority of the elderly poor?

  • Or, that female entrepreneurs only receive 1p in every e1 of funding given to start-up businesses?

The way things are going it will take 200 years to close the gender pay gap, but Annabelle shows how economic inequality is a much bigger problem than what women earn. Economies thrive when women do well, and only by understanding why women are poorer than men can we finally end this unfair disparity between the sexes.

Annabelle Williams, former financial journalist for The Times, reveals how we got here and we can all do to fix it.
