The Feminist Financial Handbook
A Modern Woman's Guide to a Wealthy Life
Sometimes the best way to stick it to the man is by doing well for yourself. There’s just one problem: it’s hard to do well for yourself when systemic oppression has placed innumerable hurdles between you and your aspirations. THE FEMINIST FINANCIAL HANDBOOK provides actionable tips for overcoming these obstacles without dulling the visceral experience of the real-life struggles women face as they try to master their money and their lives. Because women’s experiences don’t exist in a vacuum relegated to their gender, the handbook explores financial issues with anecdotes and perspectives of women of different races, sexual orientations and abilities. Whether you want to learn more about general money principles, like saving or earning a higher income, or delve into issues that disproportionately affect women, like the wage gap or the long road to economic recovery after experiencing domestic violence, you’ll find stories and advice from women who have been there, worked through the struggle, and achieved their goals.
