Hello from Shrill Society!
This month, we’re all about the money! It’s not just Equal Pay Day (April 2) or Tax Day (April 15) that has us with Benjis on the brain, the theme of our Nasty Woman planner in April is financial health. Money can be a minefield of a topic, especially as so many of us are reconciling our knowledge that, yes, capitalism is a seriously broken system and we also benefit from its many conveniences (we’re not the only ones on our iPhones right now, right?!?). So this month we’re looking at the macro―a corrupt global banking industry, systemic wage inequality―as well as the micro―managing a household budget and the pleasure of a (vicarious) splurge.
Our planner takes inspiration from Oprah Winfrey, the Queen of All Media and the first black woman billionaire. And while we’re not saying we all need Oprah cash (or that anyone does), we can still stan her financial savvy and ability to carve out meaningful space for herself and her voice, all the while making that money. This month, we’re excited to talk with women who are similarly carving out a niche for themselves in the world of financial education, advocacy, and entrepreneurship and at the same time paving the way for other women. In this issue of The Shout, we share their stories, as well as what we’re reading, watching, and laughing our heads off about this month. Tell us what you think or share recommendations with us of boss women to watch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
