  1. I think I know the premis of this. Women and men take the reins by starting a company. Typically people who start companies are executives of companies. Women are better educated, have better credit and can get loans easier, but are less often to take business risks. As Thomas Sowell points out, unmarried women make more money for the same job verse unmarried men, but men are more likely to put themselves into situations that result in rejection and failure. Take the reins by raising some horses and putting equity in yourself.
