The global coronavirus pandemic continues to impact businesses and individuals and take its toll on daily life.
More, practical financial education around budgeting and planning are essential now more than ever to increase the financial resilience of women, secure their futures and the wellbeing of society overall.
Women are impacted the most...
Women carry the higher share of unpaid work.
Women have the highest proportion of low paid, zero-hours and part-time self employed work.
Women are the majority of health workers putting them at risk of exposure (especially during a pandemic).
Women are expected to lose their jobs at an accelerated rate, increasing financial dependency and vulnerability.
Women are more likely to be dependent on social security and are more likely to be in a volatile housing situation.
With the crisis impacting pension savings, this will impact women who are forecasted to be five times poorer at the age of retirement.
