Through the creation and presentation of the Everywoman's Money[tm] Conferences around the country, women are telling us what they want to know and how they want it explained. Women know their need to be money-smart is more essential than ever. They are emerging with new levels of assets, responsibilities, and opportunities, requiring them to have a thorough knowledge of how money works.
Just as they are experiencing new opportunities, women also continue to be challenged by some very real financial risks. At this writing, two thirds of America's poor are women, many of whom lived middle-class lives until a divorce or death of a husband sent them into poverty. Eighty-five percent of the elderly poor are women, and 100,000 of the 127,000 people over 100 years of age are, you guessed it, women. Collectively, women still earn only 75 percent of what men earn, and their in-and-out careers (because of caring for children and parents) produce smaller pensions. In other words, women in general have less money available than men to sustain a life that lasts longer than men's.
Women must compensate for this shortfall by getting smart about money and how it grows so they can have enough for long enough. This is why Everywoman's Money[tm] exists. It is why we are committed to "teaching money like it's never been taught before."
