Women’s Personal Finance: Wednesday Roundup June 7, 2023

Welcome to the Women’s Personal Finance Wednesday Roundup! We started this series back in 2018 on TreadLightlyRetireEarly.com to showcase the fabulous women in the online personal finance community who are talking about money online. Even now, there is a perception that women aren’t good with money, don’t care about money, or don’t understand it on a granular level beyond perhaps knowing how to coupon and score a good shopping deal.

These roundups are our way of doing a small part to change that perception. There is no shortage of women online doing their part to make it clear that they DO understand money, and these posts are meant to amplify that fact.

Why does it matter? Because representation matters. Because reading and hearing stories from those who (may or may not) look like us show us that yes, we too can figure out this money thing, that we too have important stories to tell. And that we too know quite a lot about money and are experts worth listening to.

Since Women’s Personal Finance has grown up to get its own website, it’s time to transition these roundups over here to the dedicated website. Same great content, new home!

Our Women’s Personal Finance Facebook group on Facebook also has a sharing thread on Fridays, and that’s the place to read all the blog posts written by members over the previous week. If you’re looking for more articles written by women and nonbinary folks, that’s a great place to continue reading (plus we have plenty of great discussions on finances the rest of the week as well!).

If you don’t have the time or inclination to go searching down myriad posts, though, we will be continuing this series every week to showcase some of the best of the new content we read. If you ever read a post you think we absolutely need to consider for this roundup, please let us know! We are always open to reading new blogs and want to celebrate those newer voices as well as the more seasoned ones.

And with that, here is the best (in our opinion) content by women and nonbinary folks this past week. Let us know what you think in the comments! We love discussion.

Women’s Personal Finance Weekly Roundup #94 (Actually, 233)

1. What men really think about women Liberating Motherhood

“I hear a lot of women wondering if they should give a man a chance, if they should try to teach him, if they should overlook just this one bad behavior. And now this one, and now this one, and now this one.

My response: Do you want to live the rest of your life trapped with a man who thinks this way about you? They want chance after chance so they can exploit you as long and as much as possible.

Unless he make explicit his feminism, his ability to value women, and his ability to contribute something meaningful to your life, he’s not worth the pain he will cause.”

2. Moral Neutrality in Money and Life Maura Madden

“We place value judgments on so many aspects of life – both ours and others – that are actually morally neutral. Our culture encourages us to think of some things as bad or inferior and other things as good or superior. There are multiple reasons for this but they can usually be tracked back to capitalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy.”

3. Surviving Capitalism 101 Rich and Resilient Living

“What are your favorite capitalism survival strategies? These are some of mine.” (TikTok video)
