151: The History of Women and Money 2.0

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | The History of Women and Money 2.0Something I’m extremely passionate about is teaching and coaching women around money, specifically, our socialization as it relates to money. The way most women believe and feel about themselves around money is not an accident, and it’s vital for us to understand the sordid history behind it.

As March is Women’s History Month, I’m reprising an episode I shared on the history of women and money, starting from ancient history, and bringing you up to speed to current-day United States. A lot of what I’m sharing will seem crazy to us, but it was the norm for a very long time, and it’ll shed light on why women tend to have limiting beliefs when it comes to money.

Tune in this week as I go over the important dates and milestones throughout history in terms of women’s financial rights, and the women who have fought for the right we take for granted today. You’ll hear how financial autonomy has really only been achieved recently, and how the landscape has changed over time.
