March 8 is International Women’s Day.
In honor of the holiday, Personal Finance by Women is putting together a content celebration!
Join us by creating a piece of content on your site around gender equality and its impact on individuals’ personal economies or independence.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Has gender inequality affected your career?
- Has the wage gap impacted you?
- Have you ever felt like gender played a role in how well your salary negotiation attempts were received?
- Have you ever had trouble securing funding as a female or nonbinary business owner?
- Has gender inequality affected your financial education?
- Or any other part of your education?
- Why should businesses care about creating workplaces that celebrate gender equality?
- Does a lack of gender equality affect your medical decisions? How does this in turn affect your finances over the short-term and long-term?
- Has gender inequality affected your housing decisions?
- How do you think we can encourage a culture of gender equality moving forward?
- What are actionable steps individuals can take towards building that gender-equal future?
These are just ideas; feel free to create! You are welcome and encouraged to incorporate additional themes you have lived experience with at other various intersections of oppression.
