Women struggle more when it comes to talking about money
Managing your financial situation is not an easy task. There are a multitude of factors to consider, beginning with how much you earn, right up to the more delicate questions such as debts and investments.
But talking about it isn’t always easy. The feelings that we have when it comes to money are very complex, and we often feel uncomfortable when discussing the topic with friends, colleagues and family members.
Women are mostly affected by this phenomenon. In fact for decades, the role of women in society was seen as subordinate to that of a man. This was particularly evident when it came to the subject of money, with the man of the house being seen as responsible for the finances, while the housewife was simply a beneficiary.
In addition, banking institutes seem to take advantage of the complexities of this topic, and try to sell products to clients who are not always fully aware of what they are actually buying.
We need to quash these preconceptions, become more informed about the world of personal finance and take back control of our money.
