Even still, women tend to live on average, seven years longer than men and need more financial support in old age to make ends meet. This is another reason equal pay is so important. Though the plight of all retired women struggling to get by would not be solved by equal pay, it would help each of them move closer to economic security. At Wider Opportunities for Women (WOW), the Elder Economic Security Initiative is front and center on the issues regarding elder economic security, and the inequalities of women and the long-term affect this has on retirement. Check out the Single Elder Women Fact Sheet for more information about elder women struggling to get by financially.
