Virgina Tech Admits Women Control 60% of Wealth in the United States And More

"Did You Know? According to the U.S. Department of Education, in the 2005-06 school year, women made up:
57.5 percent of all students earning bachelor's degrees. Nearly 60 percent of students earning master’s degrees.
48.9 percent of students earning Ph.D.s. 
Women control nearly 60 percent of the wealth in the United States.
There are more than half a million women with personal incomes of $100,000 or more. More than 10 million firms in the United States are majority or equally owned by women.

According to the National Association of Women Business Owners and the Small Business Administration, women employ approximately 27 million Americans. The number of wealthy women in the U.S. is growing twice as fast as the number of wealthy men. Women represent more than 40 percent of all Americans with gross investable assets above $600,000. 45 percent of American millionaires are women.

48 percent of estates worth more than $5 million are controlled by women, compared with 35 percent controlled by men. 60 percent of high net worth women have earned their own fortunes. Some estimate that by 2030, women will control as much as two-thirds of the nation’s wealth."
