Women And Money

As we sat down with our partners at NBC's 'Today' to pull together this year's Money for Women coverage, we wondered what women consider to be their biggest financial problems today. We had International Communications Research poll 500 women from a broad range of economic levels. Their top five concerns: affording retirement, living on what they make, paying for health care, buying a home and getting out of debt. These five worries have something in common -- they're all about making ends meet. Examples are given of women who are trying to tackle these financial concerns. Included are examples of managing money, retirement saving, overcoming debt, health insurance, and buying a home.
