Women typically live longer, make less money, work less, and take less risk than men. To amplify these challenges, women can also add additional vulnerability by not participating in their own financial future, delegating their financial decisions and control to someone else, not seeking to increase financial knowledge and financial self-efficacy, inability to negotiate, and not maintaining skills and experience to provide economic value in the workplace.
Exhale! We know it sounds scary when we list all of these. The good news is that you are here at StrongHER Money! Addressing financial vulnerability is one of the many reasons we created this community. By recognizing where we may fall short, we can find the strength to overcome these obstacles through education and community support!
