Attend a launch day webcast of the new report, "Deeper in Debt: Women and Student Loans".

The American Association of University Women offers another of its in-depth reports. Student loan debt is now a $1.3-trillion problem burdening 44 million borrowers. Experts are talking about the effects of student debt on the economy, but they aren't talking about its disproportionate effects on women.

Women's success in postsecondary education is shrinking the gender pay gap and opening up opportunities, but at what price? Women not only take on more student debt than men do, but women also pay back their loans more slowly because of the gender pay gap. The webcast will feature experts and first-person stories about student debt.
