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




An exploration of how the world favours men financially, along with practical steps we can all take to bring about meaningful change

Nearly 70% of Britain's homeless are women.

There are more men called Dave running the UK's top 100 companies than there are women altogether.

Women outperform men educationally at every level from high school to PhD - but still get paid less.

In this astonishing dissection of the gender wealth gap, financial journalist Annabelle Williams explains why so few women rank among the super-rich and why women are the majority of those in poverty. From the personal - feeling financially confident and liberated - to the political - demanding systemic support and representation - this ground-breaking exposé will empower your financial decisions and arm you with the knowledge needed to demand equality.

Praise for Why Women Are Poorer Than Men and What We Can Do About It

Annabelle Williams uncovers the realities of money in the modern world, and what exactly we can do about the fact that women are poorer than men

Stylist

Williams' book goes beyond talks of glass ceilings and gender pay gaps to a more nuanced look at the institutional oppression faced by women on a daily basis

Dazed

Essential reading for all serious feminists and 'femanists' and an important reminder that a lack of female leadership and representation at the top leads to an economic gender equality that affects all women, whatever their income level or role in society

Gill Whitty-Collins, author of Why Men Win At Work

It is refreshing to see Williams challenge well-worn sexist myths . . . These debates are now greatly enriched thanks to Williams' contribution, democratic style and energetic lightness of touch

i

Williams is passionate in her mission to educate women about finance... the great strength of this book comes from her generosity of spirit and desire to share her considerable financial expertise, providing a practical, democratic, user-friendly guide to the world of finance
