My boss forwarded me a study called “Women, Debt and the Recession,” and asked if I’d like to blog about the topic. Maybe he thinks I know a thing or two about being a female in debt and weathering the recession. Seeing as I just wrote about my new frugality (or lack thereof), perhaps I would have some insight about the rather startling statistics revealed in this recent CareOne Debt Relief Services’ survey.
Lesbian sex, abortion, gay marriage and … credit card debt.
That mixed bag of hot-button topics is just a small sampling of what’s in Esquire’s “Survey of American Women,” released in May 2010 issue. The just-for-fun study complied the results of about 10,000 women that took the men’s magazine survey online between Feb. 4 and March 3, 2010.
Most of the questions centered around relationships (If you knew you wouldn’t be caught, would you cheat?), sex (If you were or are a lesbian, what celebrity would you sleep with?) and plain old hawtness (Who’s the best looking man in America? Hint: See picture above.) But readers also got a small peak at the financial habits of today’s Esquire-reading women.
Read on to see what the survey results.
