“We’ll never solve the feminization of power until we solve the masculinity of wealth,” said Gloria Steinem.
And we believe she’s right!
Only 33% of women in India today make independent financial decisions (DSP Winvestor Pulse 2019).
As women, we have been programmed to believe that money somehow isn’t our concern, it’s a man’s job to take care of the finances. ‘Don’t talk about money’ is one of the most deep-seated unspoken rules of ‘lady-like etiquette.’

If you’re not in charge of your own money, you’re not in charge of your own life. We cannot be fully equal with men until we are financially equal with men.
So what can we do?
