here are a few money issues women face that men don't-
1. women live longer- on average 5-7 years longer than men
2. women earn less- despite big changes in the work environment women still only make about .77 cents on the dollar to men.
3. women spend an average of 11.5 fewer years in the paid workforce- opting out in order to raise children, care for elderly parents, etc.
these three things can mean big disparities with income. as mintlife puts it, a 'pretty toxic cocktail.'
uh yea, i'd say so.
