7 Steps to Financial Empowerment for Women
One hundred years ago women began to enter the workforce in droves. This movement contributed to making enormous strides in women’s rights, social dynamics, and the economy. Women slowly gained the right to hold property and credit in their own names, but only since 1974 has it been illegal for lenders to discriminate credit granting based on gender. This change in rights means that now 90% of women will experience managing money on their own (either because they are single, divorced, or widowed).
Over the years women have proven to be better lenders than men. These trends are evident in the rising number of female entrepreneurs and women owned businesses. The advent of income has also made women powerful consumers in the economy. In most households, women make 83% of the purchasing decisions.
Financial empowerment for women is important not only because of women’s significant contribution to the economy, but also because women live on average 10 years longer than men. Women have to create a longer financial plan. They also have to do so making 1/3 less than their male counterparts.
