What Issues Do Women in Debt Face? [Panel Discussion] | DFI30 | Our latest bankruptcy study revealed that the average female debtor saw her unsecured debt increase 6.5%, while her male counterpart only had a 0.7% increase in his unsecured debt load in 2021. Why is this? What are specific issues that women in debt face? On today’s podcast, we have an all-female panel of Trustees, who share their insights from client interactions, as well as personal experiences. They discuss why women have less take-home pay compared to men; share advice on how women can advocate for themselves in the workplace; discuss the pink tax and its effect on spending, and much more! Tune in for a great roundtable.
