Williams, Annabelle

Money gives us freedom. It gives us choices. But why is it women are nearly always poorer than men? The modern world is rigged unfairly in men’s favour. Exploring injustices and penalties from pensions to the tampon tax, bearing children to boardroom bullying, Annabelle Williams, financial journalist for The Times, shows how society conspires to limit women’s wealth. Did you know that the NHS spends more on Viagra than helping single mother families eat healthily? Or, that women are the majority of the elderly poor?
