At some point during their lives, 80 to 90 percent of women will be solely responsible for their own finances. Unfortunately for the majority of them, it will be later in life. Women tend to have shorter work histories than men, as a result of entering and leaving the workforce due to raising children. In addition, fewer women participate in employer-sponsored retirement plans compared to men.
