Brynne Conroy -The Feminist Financial Handbook
Brynne Conroy - The Feminist Financial Handbook
Tuesday, August 20, 7 p.m.
"While The Feminist Financial Handbook addresses personal finance topics such as budgeting systems, investment options, and emergency funds, its unique value is describing the backstories of women’s financial lives. Chapter topics include: single parenting, gender income gaps, salary negotiations, financial account ownership, PTSD and depression, and domestic and financial abuse.
Skillfully combining political and historical insights, research findings, and real-life stories of women managing their finances, Conroy offers readers hope, support, and specific action steps at the end of each chapter. Women who desire financial security for themselves and others and financial educators, counselors, coaches, and planners who assist them will benefit greatly from the unique perspectives contained within this book." --Barbara O’Neill, Ph.D., CFP®
Brynne Conroy started writing about money when she didn't have any. As she figured out ways to save more and earn more, she shared them with the world on her award-winning women’s finance blog-- Femme Frugality--and progressively climbed up the economic ladder. She is also the author of The Feminist Financial Handbook, which has been called “revolutionary” and “a unicorn among finance books.” Her freelance writing has been featured in respected print and online publications where she looks beyond the dollars and cents to examine both the systemic and psychological flashpoints that determine the state of Americans’ finances.
Brynne will be signing books after the event.
