xoJane: Women Need To Start Talking About Money

There’s this sort of culture built up around Not Talking About Money for women, and I’d argue that culture is incredibly persistent and also incredibly damaging. Grown-ass women have a hard time talking about money, women have trouble mentoring each other through money problems, and young women often get limited financial education and are just sort of thrown into a shark-infested pool2 and left to fend for themselves. As a result, many women struggle with financial problems that are not of their own making, but they’re cast as hapless and unable to perform basic life functions.
