A newly released 2012 study by Prudential reveals that women are more in control of their finances than ever, but are facing challenges with financial decision making. The study finds that both younger and baby boomer women identify themselves as financial beginners, though they feel empowered to call the shots on their own. Additionally, the study noted that only one in ten women breadwinners said they felt knowledgeable about financial products and services.
