Invitation: Barbie, Money and the Gender Gap

August 10, 2023

Join Perigon for a Women’s Conversation Circle on Financial Empowerment

By: Mary Ballin, Rachel Elson, and Andrea Hamilton

“Do you ever think about … the patriarchy?”

The megahit Barbie movie — in which director Greta Gerwig gave the iconic brand a subversive twist — has a lot of people talking about feminism, female stereotypes and women’s empowerment.

For women in our field, the effects of the patriarchy aren’t exactly news. (We’re looking at you, 82-cents-on-the-dollar wage gap.) Still, we wanted to know: How has gender shaped your experiences with money? Have you learned strategies over time to negotiate harder, advocate for yourself, take more control? (Did you even need to?) What was the first empowered move you made around your own finances?

For the next Perigon Women’s Circle, let’s discuss the way gender has affected both our control of, and our feelings about, our own finances.

Barbie, Money and Beating the Gender Gap

When: Wednesday, September 13, 2023
Time: 4:00pm – 5:30pm Pacific Time
Where: Online via Zoom – we’ll send out a conference link in advance

We welcome you and your female friends, partners and family members to join us in this discussion.
Please RSVP as quickly as possible.
