The Gender Gap No One Is Talking About

Given that women live five-plus years longer than men, what would happen if we acknowledge that the retirement savings crisis is a women’s crisis? Applying this lens, potential solutions move from growth-sapping tax increases and entitlement cuts to closing the gender pay gap and keeping women in the workforce longer. Shoring up these divides is part of the national dialogue. But there’s another gender gap that’s not: the gender investing gap, which can cost some women more than the original pay rift. Join us as we explore the dated myths that hold women back from investing and the means to closing this breach.
