Economies thrive when women do well. So why is there still a wealth gap between the sexes, and what can we do to close it?

What if you knew you would earn less than men for the rest of your life?

From pensions to the tampon tax, bearing children to boardroom bullying, the modern world is rigged unfairly in men’s favour. Everyone knows about the pay gap, but most people don’t realise that women have less money saved, find it harder to buy a home, struggle to raise funds to start a business and bear the brunt of cuts to government spending. Great economic inequality still exists between men and women.

In this livestream event, financial journalist Annabelle Williams will uncover how society conspires to limit women’s wealth – and empower you with the knowledge to solve financial inequality between the genders for good.

This event is a partnership between the How To Academy and Penguin Live. This event will be recorded and sent to all ticket-holders the day after the event. It will be available to watch for 7 days.
