Women earn 78 cents on the dollar, on average, compared to men in America, despite decades of fighting for wage equality. And while it is true that women have significantly more opportunities for earning than in past eras, this improved ability for women to determine their own financial future makes it more important that girls understand the strategies for financial success.
Financial Nutrition® for Young Women: How (and Why) to Teach Girls about Money addresses the two critical levels that are necessary to truly eradicate women’s economic inequality: what to teach girls and what women need to learn. Authored by a financial educator who is also a mother and a teacher, this book is for people who care about teenage girls—parents and other family members, educators, financial advisors, troop leaders, camp directors, and community organization leaders. The talking points and independent activities are easily accessible and engaging for both adults and students. Financial Nutrition® for Young Women: How (and Why) to Teach Girls about Money can be used effectively in the home, the classroom, afterschool programs, clubs, and camps, as well as in girls’ organizations. It can also be a resource to women who want to better understand how to empower themselves financially.
