Women with full-time jobs still earn only about 77 % of their male counterparts’ earnings.

In the U.S. if the earnings gap is not corrected, according to U.S. Census data, by the age of 65 years, the average working woman would have lost more than $430,000 over her working lifetime.

While 65 per cent of men report having an account at a formal financial institution, only 58 per cent of women do worldwide.
