Women should pay higher taxes and gain lower pensions:
Middle-aged women face a health timebomb and will need 5½ years more care than men after they hit 65, a study has warned.
Women now in their 50s will spend an average of 12½ years at the end of their lives depending on carers to support their daily needs, researchers predict, as growing numbers live with multiple illnesses.
If women, as a group, are going to take more out of that welfare state then they should pay more in, no? Today’s strong and independent women do wish to stand up for themselves after all.
