In her article The New Breadwinners Heather Boushey shares some startling information and statistics:
Women have made great strides and are now more likely to be economically responsible for themselves and their families than ever before. In fact, for the first time in U.S. history, women are half of all U.S. workers and mothers are the primary breadwinners or co-breadwinners in nearly two-thirds of American families
In addition to their role as breadwinner, women are still carrying the majority of the load of caring for the home and kids.
This is just one of many reasons why women need life insurance now more than ever.
