Older women 'becoming breadwinners'

Older women 'becoming breadwinners': "Two-thirds of women over the age of 40 are the primary providers for their families, new research indicates.

Commissioned by Nivea, the study found that not only did 68 per cent of females within this age group provide most of their household's income, but 29 per cent provided all of it.

Many of the women surveyed expressed a desire to have more support at work to help them perform their roles, with 27 per cent wanting the option of working from home and 26 per cent wishing to see better support from their employer generally."
