Women’s financial assets and debts

Fawcett launched a new project in March 2006 to plug gaps in understanding of the differences between women’s and men’s financial assets and debt. Although differences in women’s and men’s income were well-documented, until this project began, hard evidence on differences in assets and debt was much sparser.
