    For Women, the Nicer You Are, the Less Money You Make

    1) For Women, the Nicer You Are, the Less Money You Make


    Source:

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/for-women-the-nicer-you-are-the-less-money-you-make-203757312.html

    When I first read the title, I thought it meant:
    a) Women think the nicer you are, the less money you make.

    Apparently, that is not at all what it means. It means:

    b) If you are a woman, the nicer you are, the less money you make.

    Has 'for' been used correctly in '1'?
    I suppose it means: as regards.... as far as women are concerned...

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    It's correct. That's how it's used.
    You might think of the other meaning and immediately dismiss it as unlikely. If it meant this, it would probably start with "To women".
