Poverty and women

Women earn less.  Women do a lot of unpaid labour.  Men enjoy a lot of unpaid labour.  There are few women at the highest-earning levels.   Many boards should have more women.  Many marriages do not help women as much as they help men.  For instance, most homes in Nigeria are owned by the men, and not co-owned by the women. 

Here is the US data on women's earnings:
The poverty class is 60% female.  The wealthy end is about 30% female.  OK.
