Money and career expert Dunlap has written a much-needed book about the intersections between feminism and financial literacy. She brings together real-life stories, voices from other experts, personal anecdotes, and strong research, all designed to strip away the shame and stigma that many women internalize. She also sets out clear, actionable steps toward something greater than a balanced checkbook: a strong sense of self-sufficiency and a recognition that being “bad with money” is a story we tell ourselves, not an inherent trait. The homework assignments and prompts give readers helpful takeaway tools.
VERDICT Dunlap’s honesty serves as a powerful source of motivation to do the work, not just to secure financial autonomy but to break out of stereotypes that limit women’s potential in all aspects of their lives.
