Can women afford to be financially illiterate?

  • Obvious answer is no because most women will have to manage their finances on their own at some point in their life. As a woman you are better off in life earning and managing your own money. You neither can prevent your husband from leaving you or taking another wife nor can you prevent your kids betray you in old age. But you could have some of your dignity if you didn’t have to beg them for financial support. You may also have to finance your ageing parents.
  • That’s why it is it is very important for women to have a strong understanding about how to manage their finance, and invest for their own future. But general tendency amongst women is that they are very reluctant to discuss their finance with anyone else, including their life partner.
  • In general, it is seen that women can discuss their personal, family or even love matters with friends, medical issues with a doctor, but when it comes to talking about money and investments they are very tight lipped. Behind women’s resistance to discuss about money matter lies lack of confidence in their knowledge of financial planning and investing. This lack of confidence is really self-imposed one, completely unwarranted and mostly due to earlier habits, sometimes dating back to childhood spent watching men handle finances in families. Traditionally, women have demonstrated stronger saving rates than their male counterparts and enjoyed better long-term investment performance whenever they did take initiative in this regard. Unfortunately, too many women still hesitate to take control of their finances.”
