International Women’s Day – the gender pensions gap

To mark International Women’s Day we’re putting the gender pension gap under the microscope.

The gender pensions gap – the inequality between men and women’s pensions – is more than double the size of the total gender pay gap, with the average female pensioner £7,000 a year poorer than her male counterpart.

Pensions journalist Sara Benwell and Sarah Luheshi from the Pensions Policy Institute join Phil Brown to explore why that pensions gap is so big and what can be done to close it.
