The modern world is rigged unfairly in men’s favour. From pensions to the tampon tax, bearing children to boardroom bullying. In this online event, financial journalist and author Annabelle Williams will explore Why Women Are Poorer Than Men and uncover how society conspires to limit women’s wealth.

What if you knew you would earn less than men for the rest of your life? 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. Annabelle Williams will bring her much needed expertise to this important conversation, revealing how we got here and what we can all do to fix it.

This livestream event will equip and empower you with the knowledge of how to solve financial inequality between the genders for good.

This event will be hosted via Zoom webinar. You will be sent your personal link to login 48 hours before the event.

If you purchase a book with your ticket, you will receive your copy of the book in the 10 days after the event.
