A Matter of Life and Debt

Part of WOW – Women of the World

You’ve heard about the gender pay gap, but what about the gender financial security gap?

Why do women have more personal debt than men, own fewer homes and face more financial risk over the course of their lives?

How do issues like domestic violence, benefits cuts and low wages disproportionately affect women, and what should every woman know about money?

Speakers include: Sarah Pennells, personal finance journalist, author and creator of the UK’s leading money website for women, SavvyWoman; Jane Portas, partner at PwC, and co-founder of Insuring Women’s Futures and leading the Women’s Risks in Life work; Vanessa Raimundo and Jennifer Allerton of the Young Women's Trust.

Chaired by Sam Smethers, Chief Executive of the Fawcett Society.

Presented by The Fawcett Society.
