¬†Historically, money management was thought of as man’s work, As 41 percent of MBA students are now women, this notion, like so many things that we previously accepted as reality, is being disassembled.

Using historical reference points, inspiring prose and some practical tips, she provides a framework for a new paradigm that is emerging.
