Your Money or Your Life: Personal Finance

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Our finance experts explain how women can make the most of their money in a talk with speakers including Daniella Jenkins, a researcher in pension inequalities.

For centuries women have been locked out of financial decisions – it was only in 1975 where women in the UK could open a bank account in their own name, and there is no country in the world where men and women have official economic equality.

Many of us don’t feel confident dealing with or talking about money, but understanding money and personal finance brings opportunities and benefits – and could be a life saver.

Hear about feminist pensions; how you can increase your financial health, happiness and independence; why knowing your stuff is so important; and where you can get financial information.

Panellists include Daniella Jenkins, Kirsty Good, Olga Miler and Emma-Lou Montgomery.

Daniella Jenkins is the executive director at WOW and is also a researcher in pension inequalities.

Kirsty Good is head of campaigns at MoneySavingExpert.

Olga Miler is the cofounder of SmartPurse.

Emma-Lou Montgomery is the associate director of personal investing at Fidelity International.
