As a woman, you’re expected to manage more than your share. When you’re growing up in your family, you’re more likely to have to help out with chores and household responsibilities than a brother might be…on top of school, a part-time job, and however else you spend your time.
As an adult, society says you can have it all. But in reality, that’s only true if you plan to work 25 hours a day. If you’re single or married, have a family or don’t, work in the home or outside of it, being a woman means being constantly moving, working and learning. With that in mind, a woman’s retirement should be easy breezy, right?
