Falmouth SWIFT - Older Women Workers: Employment, Economic Security, and Building Community

In the spring of 2015, a small group of women began meeting in Falmouth because we were concerned about the tenuous economic security of many older women living on Cape Cod. Women, on average, earn less than men over the course of their working lives because they typically have been paid less for full-time work and are more likely to have worked part- time or to have left the workforce to care for children or family members. Therefore, when women reach retirement age, their social security, pension and savings are lower than those of their male counterparts.
