Women Live Longer, So They Should Save Early

NPR is currently airing a fascinating series called "The Changing Lives of Women." This morning's story centered around women and retirement by tackling the issue of Social Security. Namely, it remarks on how historically (and continuing even today) women's benefits average lower than men and how many have come to rely on Social Security as their main source of retirement income when it was never intended to be so. I encourage all to listen.
