There is a reference to that in Warren Farrell's book The myth of male power. I dont think its that they control 65% of the wealth in this country, I think its that they SPEND 65% or 70% of the money made in this country......pretty close to the same thing though.
Typical PC bullshit.Most of the times I think they blow this portion way in the sky.Women do not work as much as men, even nowadays, and they choose lower paid occupations, so they do not generate as much money as men do.Yet, they spend more, which can only mean one thing, they get the extra money from men. Either directly or indirectly (divorces, child support, etc.)The thing I hate about these messages is that they TRY to make it look like women somehow work more than men or GENERATE more money than men, which is simply not true.Also, they never explain how it is possible women can spend more than they earn. Maybe they don't want to write that down together with the glorifying news, because it might damage the degree of PC of the article
