Brynne Conroy -The Feminist Financial Handbook
7:00 PM
Rediscovered Books
Description:
"The Feminist Financial Handbook by Brynne Conroy is a must read for any one interested in money. It’s not just for women. It’s not just for feminists. This book provides an intersectional view of money, as well as the historical and political context that is largely missing from many, many money books.

Brynne takes the time and care to not only touch on, but examine the historical and socio-political context on money in the US, and how that effects women’s lives. She speaks with women who have first hand experience dealing with the social welfare system in the US, and the impact that had on their finances as well as their emotions. She lists out social programs that low income people can seek support from. Chapter 3 is literally titled ‘Poverty Sure Can Rain on Your Parade’, and explores how poverty can compound on itself, creating a loop that’s very hard to break. She speaks to larger scale structures that have huge impacts on money like the motherhood penalty, what the kyriarchy is and why it matters, and how mental illness plays a role in women’s lives and money."
