Ten Financial Tips for Women™

Image
On average, women earn 76 cents for every dollar men earn in the workplace. Because women typically spend approximately seven years out of the work force to have and raise children, their earnings are even further curtailed. With lower pay and less time spent in the work force, women are generally left with smaller retirement portfolios, lower company pension benefits and lower Social Security benefits than men. Despite the fact that women earn less money than men, they generally need a larger retirement nest egg. On average, women live seven years longer than men and must finance more years in retirement. And although a woman may share her husbands savings, those assets may be depleted quickly if he becomes ill and dies first, which considering life expectancy, is often the case. In addition, 50% of marriages end in divorce, and the average age of widowhood is currently at 56 years. Therefore, most women are solely responsible for their finances at some point in their lives. What can…

What To Do With A Woman Who Has Commitment Phobia™

Image
A woman with commitment phobia always feels insecure and vulnerable when it comes to marriage. She wants to postpone the decision; is often confused and does not know how to get out of the relationship. Unlike men, women with commitment phobia don’t go around hunting for men. They develop natural relationships; relationships in which they believe but which they are not willing to sustain. In the process they not only hurt men but also hurt themselves.

They find it very difficult to get out of such relationships. There is a feeling of guilt; sometimes even of remorse. But these feelings are overpowered by a strong feeling of fear. There is a great reluctance to approach the subject of marriage. At the same time, there is despair too. They don’t want to let go the man who has brought such happiness in their lives. But they only end up leaving their partners confused, bewildered and angry.

Why do women turn into commitment phobes

The psychologists see a clear relationship between commitment…

Why Women Love Shopping™

Image
What is it about shopping that inspires us ? Why can we spend literally hours traipsing up and down a shopping mall, max out our credit cards and ignore our own physical comfort just to have the perfect dress, shoes or handbag? That's the allure of fashion.Most women love fashion. We buy fashion because it's fun and it makes us feel good to have nice things. Essentially we are drawn to fashion because it fulfills an emotional need. We fall in love with the colour or the cut and simply have to own it. The power of fashion is that it allows us to transform ourselves. New clothes and accessories let us see ourselves in a different way.Women today can shop in a way their grandmothers would have thought impossible. Today we have more power, are better educated, have far more resources and are better able to make our own decisions. Women actually make the majority of financial decisions in the household and have more disposable income than ever before. Shopping has become a favourit…

Crime Against Women™

Image
Violence against women and girls is a major human rights concern. People would think that with increasing female education and women's welfare organizations coming up by the dozens there would be less and less number of crimes against women. But the truth is otherwise.Violence on women seems to be very much prevalent and even on the rise in many parts of the world, specially so in India. India's most literate state of Kerala seems to be facing this problem of rising crimes against its female folk.Even as such crimes are on the rise globally, the number of policewomen in India available to tackle such cases is woefully short. Crime Against Women Reports from India:According to National Crimes Report Bureau, 1.5 hundred thousand crimes against women are registered annually out of which nearly 50,000 are related to domestic violence. Its believed that close to 5 million women suffer from violence in their homes; however only 0.1% are courageous enough to report.Do you think that …

Violence Against Women in Mass Media™

Image
Images of women in mass media have been under scrutiny in recent
decades. At one end of the continuum is print advertisement, brief, often
single-paged combinations of text and imagery to sell a product. At the
other end is pornography, sexually explicit imagery created to arouse in
print, television, film, and the Internet. Where does power fit in between
these? Women in both these forms of mass media are repeatedly
depicted in submissive, silenced, and even victimized roles.
Advertising
is a much more benign means of conveying power over women than
pornography. However, the average American is exposed too much
more gendered advertising than pornography in any given day.
In both,
women are not often autonomous beings but passive and objectified.The power of imagery is well known. As visual imagery is nonverbal, its
messages are often multilayered and contradictory (Kang 1997). As a
socializing agent, the visual imagery provided by the media can have a
powerful impact on our attitudes, values, belie…

Image

Women are at risk for different kinds of cancers, complications before, during, and after giving birth, and many women have health problems regarding their menstrual cycles and afterwards, when they are experiencing menopause.Plus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, not only is heart disease the leading cause of death among residents of America, but it’s also a major cause for disability. Women are no exception. In fact, for women over the age of 65, heart disease is the leading cause of death.So, what does all of this mean?Given women’s interest regarding health concerns specific to women, it’s all the more important for women to have adequate health insurance.For women, health insurance covers more than just ann…

Cheap Car Insurance for Women™

Image
“Women drivers.” Most of us have probably heard that phrase grunted from a man in our lives, whether a friend, family member, coworker, or complete stranger. And, most women have probably been somewhat aggravated by the negative connotation. But, did you know that women’s car insurance is generally cheaper than men’s car insurance? It’s true, and as sexist as it may sound, it’s actually not. There are a plethora of statistical facts that tend to cause car insurance companies to offer lower rates to women drivers than to men drivers, and none of those reasons include the idea that women drivers can’t drive!

Car insurance companies have researched data over a number of years, and the findings support the idea that, as a whole, women drivers aren’t involved in as many accidents as men drivers, and the motor vehicle-related accidents that women drivers are involved in often don’t cause as much damage as motor vehicle-related accidents men drivers are involved in. Women drivers also don’t c…

Do Women Prefer Boxers ?™

Image
It is a moot point whether women like boxers more than their greatest rival, the brief. Boxers are, as a rule, worn by men. However, boxers are a concern of women too. Actually, boxers have become one of the hottest trends in today?s fashion world.A high percentage of women prefer boxers as underwear because a certain degree of crankiness and weirdness is attached with them.
