Why Women Are Poorer Than Men and What We Can Do About It (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


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 GBP1 of funding given to start-up businesses?

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 what we can all do to fix it. Her extensive expertise will equip and empower you with the knowledge to solve financial inequality between men and women for good.

Annabelle Williams is a journalist and editor who specialises in investing, economics and consumer affairs. Previously a columnist at The Times, Williams has appeared on live TV, radio and panel debates talking about her passion for the finance inequality between genders. Why Women Are Poorer Than Men and What We Can Do About It is her first book.
