B1a College Women and Financial Literacy: Assessing the Gender Gap [CFP The Future of the Financial Planning Profession]

This study analyzes whether the documented gender gap in financial literacy also exists among men and women of college age. It further explores factors effecting financial literacy levels, including choice of college major, family engagement, and prior financial exposure. The impact of subjective and objective assessments of individuals’ financial literacy is correlated with their money behaviors and confidence levels. By providing insight on how some young women relate to financial matters and integrate finance into their lives, the findings suggest that earlier exposure to financial concepts, either through educational formats or social venues, would significantly increase young women’s financial literacy.
