The September 2009 issue of Harvard Business Review stated, “that women are a bigger market than China and India combined.” Tom Peters, management guru concurs, “Women are the largest national economy on earth. In the United States they constitute 43% of the nation’s top wealth holders and that number is growing.
And as panelist Becky Sykes adds, “they are writing big checks, especially for causes they really care about, women and children’s issues.”
