#18 – Breaking Into the Boys’ Club, Part 2

We’re picking up where we left off last week in our two-part series, talking about women breaking into fields that have historically been male-dominated. T oday we’re talking to two women scientists from across the pond – Dr. Jess Wade, a physicist in the U.K. who’s on a mission to tell the stories of women scientists in history by authoring Wikipedia pages about them, and … Continue reading #18 – Breaking Into the Boys’ Club, Part 2

#17 – Breaking Into the Boys’ Club, Part 1

Women have achieved gender parity in a large number of professions. (Whether they have parity in leadership is a whole other question, but let’s not even get into that today.) But there are still plenty of them, from tech, to science to the outdoors industry, where the boys are still in charge for the most part. Today’s show is part 1 of a two-part series … Continue reading #17 – Breaking Into the Boys’ Club, Part 1

#15 – Toxic Masculinity

Warning: the language in this week’s episode is extra salty. But it’s worth it! This is one of our favorite episodes ever. How traditional and binary gender roles harm women – and men!

#13 – Taking Action to Create Change

We often go deeeeep into the societal forces that make it just a little harder for women to get ahead financially, and we know that can feel depressing. So today we’re getting granular on what we can all do about it! Guest Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, founder of Moms Rising, a speaker at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., and author of the new book Keep Marching, … Continue reading #13 – Taking Action to Create Change

#12 – The Financial Impact of Beauty Double Standards

We’re going deep into the girliest of topics: beauty. And we’re tackling it all: makeup, clothes, hair, weight, class, and the different standards for people of color. But most of all, how all those things affect our money, both our ability to earn it, and how much we can actually earn in the end. With our guests Sanetra, a model and owner of Unravel Co, … Continue reading #12 – The Financial Impact of Beauty Double Standards

#11 – Money Things Women Aren’t Taught

The Fairer Cents is back for Season 2! (Only 25 seasons to go until the patriarchy is officially smashed.) And we’re here to talk about women, money and our fight to break even. Because we give a shit, and so should you. To kick things off, we’re getting super practical, talking about the money things we wish we’d learned at a younger age, and some … Continue reading #11 – Money Things Women Aren’t Taught
