[Survey] Women & Money 2013

Women in the Netherlands can earn up to 20% less than men for the same job in some business sectors. They also receive 40% less pension than men (Economische Commissie, June 2013).

As the number of women in the workforce is increasing in the Netherlands, particularly in part-time roles, the questions arise:
 Will women have sufficient money to be financially independent when they reach retirement age?
 Do women take responsibility for women's matters and know enough to create a safe financial future?

The European Professional Women's Network (EPWN) have developed a survey to investigate women's attitude to money.

For this reason they have joined forces with Women Inc. to gain a better understanding of:
 Dutch women's opinions on money
 How financially independent they are
 How much they know about financial planning
 Their role in financial organisations

EPWN will analyse and use the data (not only in the Netherlands but also across Europe) to compile a report and put the issue of reducing the remuneration gap on a higher political agenda.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes. Participate now!


 The final results will be announced in September / October 2013.
 The survey closes on July 6, 2013.
