International Women’s Day Report 2018

Share this

March 8th is International Women’s Day and to recognize the financial plight of women everywhere, Credit Sesame created a report to showcase how far women have come, where they are falling behind and how perceptions continue to shift.

Our International Women’s Day Report 2018 is a culmination of Credit Sesame data and surveys we have conducted over the last year that specifically targets issues around gender and finances, including who handles money better and what kind of sacrifices men and women would make to obliterate their debt.

While women are still at a disadvantage because of the gender wage gap (women still make roughly 80 cents to a man’s dollar) and high student loan debt, they are rising as leaders in the financial space.

One survey asked if people would rather have a man or woman as a financial advisor. The response overwhelmingly favored women.

These results, and others continue to propel women forward in the financial space. Check out the results in the report.
