FINANCE IS A FEMINIST ISSUE.

It’s 2021. The modern world is still rigged unfairly in men’s favour.

Exploring injustices from pensions to boardroom bullying, Annabelle Williams, former financial journalist for The Times, shows how society conspires to limit women’s wealth.

Awareness is the first step to making change, which is why we all need to understand why women are poorer than men and what exactly we can do about it.

The time to act is now.

Discover exactly what you need to know about financial inequality in this essential, eye-opening and game-changing expose of the gender wealth gap.
