Abstract

How do we close the gender wealth gap? Mariko Lin Chang assesses the policy situation in the US, suggesting reasons as to why many women find it hard to escape debt anchors, and how barriers often prevent them from taking the wealth escalator. Joe Laking concludes that although Shortchanged fails to offer any radical solutions to wealth inequality, it does present a well-evidenced argument for addressing the gender wealth gap. Shortchanged: Why Women Have Less Wealth and What Can Be Done About It. Mariko Lin Chang. Oxford University Press USA. February 2012.
