Financin' the Ladies

ShareBuilders is an online brokerage that seems geared to the blogosphere (judging only by appearance and features). They recently contracted with Harris Interactive to survey women in the workforce, focusing on financial priorities. Their report indicates that women are, of course, concerned about their financial future, "but are either unwilling or unable to take action to improve their situation."
Um, is that any different than we Y-chromosome types?
Surprisingly, the answer is "Yes." For example, about 36% of women worry about retirement "all the time," while less than 30% of men do. Odder still: about half of men believe that they're well positioned for retirement (reality is apparently NOT our strong suit), while only about a third of women believe they are.
