Why don't female business entrepreneurs get lower business insurance premiums than men?
Men pay less health insurance, and women pay less car insurance, both because they cost the insurers less. Male owned businesses cost insurers 60% more, yet women have to pay the same premiums as men, effectively having to pay for men's risk taking. Why? Also, Surely Rewarding women's superior business leadership would be better for everyone, as it also means jobs in female owned companies are safer. Presuming all these statistics can be verified? Do you agree that this should be changed, and women should pay less to match what they actually cost the insurers?

Where did you get the idea that there is a higher cost and higher risk for 'male owned businesses ? Premiums for any business are determined by the TYPE of business being operated, and according risk factors. It makes no difference if said business is owned by a male, a female, or BOTH.

I doubt this. Where are you getting your 60% statistic from?

I'd like to call BS on the 60% figure as well. Either provide a link to a scientific study showing this or stop wasting our time.

Business policies are based on the type of business and lots of other factors. Females do not pay more than males with business insurance. The question of sex is not asked when applying for a business policy. Not sure where you are getting your information but it is totally WRONG.
