Description

While the income gap between men and women is frequently discussed, the gender wealth gap is far wider and receives far less attention. The median wealth for single men is $10,150 while for single women it is only $3,210. Wealth owned by women of color is even more limited; the median wealth for black women is $200 and for Hispanic women it is a mere $100. In response, Closing the Women’s Wealth Gap Initiative is creating a national forum for a range of stakeholders to address the causes and effects of the gender wealth gap, identify promising policy and practical solutions, and move forward as a cohesive group to effect change.
