#24 – Being an Ally, Part 1: How Men Can Advocate for Women

Today’s show is the first of two parts focusing on how we can be the best possible financial allies to those around us, whether that’s online or offline.

In part 1, we’re talking about male allies: why we need them, and how men can be them. Our guests are Cord Jefferson, TV writer and outspoken feminist extraordinaire, and personal finance bloggers Matt Lane of Optimize Your Life and Brian of Done By 40. They’re all incredible allies to women, and they get vulnerable with us about how they speak up to help the feminist cause, as well as where they still struggle.
