In the new year I’d like to tackle more topics about women and money. Sometimes it seems as though the financial frontier is one of lingering areas where women are outlawed. Feministing.com posted a good piece today pointing out that mearly 10% of the world’s billionaires are women. Also mentioned in the feministing piece is an article from Forbes that talks about how men benefit from mentors more often then women.
In the new year expect to see more posts about women and financial security, managing money and general financial knowledge. In Canada women are only making .77 for every dollar a man makes in full time employment. Until we see pay equity, women are going to need to use saavy financial skills to ensure their well being and security.
