Scottish Widows is one of the UKs leading pension providers. Their latest data shows that despite more women saving into a pension, the gender pension gap persists and won't go away without action. The average young woman today is on track to retire with around £100k less than a man, the gap jumps from £100 to £100,000 over her working life. Decisions made in a woman's 20s and 30s can have a massive impact on future financial outcomes. This International Women's Day, Scottish Widows will arm women with the information they need to navigate a pension system that continues to be better suited to a typically male savings journey and help women today become the first generation to achieve pensions equality. #InspireInclusion
