Student Loan Debt by Gender

The student loan debt burden isn’t shared equally across all women borrowers. At $37,558, Black women had the highest average student loan debt in 2017, followed by White women at $31,346. Both Black and White women owed more student loan debt than their male counterparts. Conversely, Hispanic/Latinx women owed slightly less ($423)

than men in this same group. Similarly, Asian women not only had the lowest debt amount of all female borrowers but also owed slightly less than Asian men.
