Report No. 82

3.4. Position of married women.-

We would also like to state that in deciding what ought to be the law, the position of women is of particular importance. Married women as a class are not so well endowed with capital as their husbands. Men tend to be the capital makers, while women tend to acquire it as their successors. The question which gives anxious thought to many a husband is how to provide for the widow so that on his (husband's) death, the loss of his earned income or pension rights shall not lead to a drastic reduction in the widow's standard of living. Married women for the most part are not faced with a similar problem regarding their spouses, they have less to leave, and, on death, their income has probably not contributed to the maintenance of the family home. to an appreciable extent. However, in those cases where they are faced with that problem, the answers which apply to men apply equally to them.
