The jobs market turn over rates are high for women. More women are out of the job market and spend in average of 11.5 years caring for children or an elderly relative.  Most women lack of knowledge to adequately plan for retirement.  For most women, social security is the only source of retirement benefits and many found it does not enough to support their retirement period.

You should start to plan for your retirement as early as your first job because you may not have the luxury 40 years in a career to save for your retirement fund. 

Learn how to get away from bad debts and how to use good debts to increase your net worth.  Know your financial situation all the time and take charge of it.  And after you are getting marriage, you need to share in managing your family's finances.  Get to know how social security is fitted into your retirement plan.  Always find the answers on what you don't know about money.

Every decisions you make as a woman will have a financial planning component to it. Hence, financial planning is essential for women; you should always learn up the skills needed to plan you financial and make good financial decisions and be successful.
