In the United States, women exercise decision-making control over $11.2 trillion. That's almost 40% of the nation's total investable assets. Unfortunately, a disappointing statistic discovered in this study was that despite being among the most financially literate people in the world, American women are 44% less likely to consider themselves knowledgeable than men. So, come on ladies, be bold, be confident, and take an even bigger piece of this pie.

I wonder how this 2014 statistic about investable assets would compare to 10 years ago - or even 30 years ago. The aim is obviously to have investable assets split roughly 50-50. That said, this chart would make me optimistic if 10 years ago women held significantly less than 40% and that their assets as a percent of the whole are growing.

These are certainly promising numbers compared to the likely lower historical average. Gender equality has built considerable momentum into the 21st century with movements such as Lean In. I think we can reasonably expect the percentage of women at the highest levels of politics and business to increase in the decades to come.
