Wonderwell to Publish Rousing Manifesto and Detailed Guide on How Women Can and Should Take Control of Their Financial Destiny
“Achieving financial wellness is the ultimate self-care and expression of self-love. There is no knight in shining armor to save you… You have to save yourself!”
We are at a critical time for women’s wellbeing. In the US, their financial outlook took a huge step back during the Covid-19 pandemic, cutting across all racial and socio-economic groups. More women than men lost their jobs or their businesses, and those figures were slower to bounce back for women in 2021. Despite gaining ground in the workforce over the past couple of decades, more women are in poverty today than at the end of 2019. In fact, economists say that the pandemic wiped out an alarming decade’s worth of gains.
Women are more educated than ever, but they still tend to stand on the sidelines when it comes to their money, according to financial experts. At the same time, women live longer, earn less, and often have to work harder than men to offset years spent out of the workforce raising children. Feminist financial authors have been writing about this for years, but we are now at a new crisis point, and that calls for a fresh and urgent voice. That’s why we’re so proud to be publishing Kimberlee Davis, founder of The Fiscal Feminist. Davis is a private wealth manager with 25 years of experience in the financial sector, who has made it her life’s work to close the Wealth Gap between women and men.
In The Fiscal Feminist: A Financial Wake-Up Call for Women (Wonderwell; May 2022), Davis educates women of all ages and economic strata about how to independently achieve—and maintain—financial health on their own terms. The book teaches readers how to:
- Understand the societal and economic headwinds that you face as a woman in building your own financial literacy and skill set.
- Identify and understand your money values and personality.
- Navigate conversations about money with your partner.
- Set a household budget that you can live with.
- Discover tech tools that can help you to manage your finances.
- Protect yourself from cyber security threats and financial abuse.
- Make smart moves when preparing for marriage, cohabitation, child-rearing, and divorce.
- Plan for a retirement that will sustain you, whatever your age.
- Master the basics of smart investing and saving.
The Fiscal Feminist is a call to action for women to increase their financial literacy and—ultimately—control their destiny.
