The Importance of being able to have easier money conversations
Do you think that a man in a position of power would try to take advantage of Oprah? Highly unlikely.
Why is it important that as women we know how to have easier money conversations? Is it to create more money with more ease? Yes, absolutely. However, it is far deeper than that. It is also to contribute to gender equity. To dissolve that imbalance of power between men and women when it comes to money.
Think about it. Do you think that the #metoo movement would be so prevalent if women had equal money and power?
Would a man who is in a position of power in the workplace, in the family home feel comfortable enough to exploit a woman, if she was in a position of equal power and influence? Perhaps, however I cannot imagine a man in a position of power trying to take advantage of Oprah.
There are women who are working in corporate jobs, living in family environments who know and feel that gender power imbalance daily. These women feel stuck, exhausted and tired. They are tired, competing to be men, focussing on being resilient all whilst doing their ‘job’. They may feel that they do not have a choice other than to stay and be subjected to this emotional rollercoaster. They might be in this position because they are the primary breadwinner for their family, they are carrying a lot and emotionally and financially there is a lot at stake. Despite this, these women know that their present way of being is not sustainable or conducive to their wellbeing, yet they may feel slightly overwhelmed by the sheer thought of change. Putting their own needs first feels somewhat foreign and greedy. You may be one of these women. I see you.
