Welcome to another week of the Women’s Personal Finance Wednesdays roundup. I started this series after months of debate because I wasn’t certain I wanted to up the ante and commit to publishing three posts a week. However, now that I’ve started sharing these posts, I’m so glad I started.

There are so many fabulous women writing about personal finance online, and yet there is still a perception that women aren’t good with money, don’t care about money, or don’t understand it on a granular level beyond perhaps knowing how to coupon and score a good shopping deal. These roundups are my way of doing a small part to change that perception. There are no shortage of women online doing their part to make it clear that they DO understand money, and these posts are meant to amplify that fact.

The hardest part of this post every week always is narrowing it down to my favorites, because there is just so much good content out there. If you’re ever interested in what else I’m reading, I share quite a few other posts on Twitter (and that’s also where I read most of the content to begin with these days).

Our Women’s Personal Finance Facebook group also has a sharing thread on Fridays, and that’s the place to read all the blog posts written by members over the previous week. If you’re looking for more articles written by women, that’s a great place to continue reading (plus we have plenty of great discussions on finances the rest of the week as well!).

If you don’t have the time or inclination to go searching down myriad posts, though, I will be continuing this series every week to showcase some of the best of the new content I read. If you ever read a post you think I absolutely need to consider for this roundup, please let me know! I am always open to reading new blogs (and posts of blogs I do know, because I miss some).

Women’s Personal Finance Wednesdays – Week 91

1. How Cash Bail Disenfranchises People Of Color And Makes Our Criminal Justice System Inherently Unjust Maggie Germano

I interviewed attorney Katherine Hubbard of the Civil Rights Corps a few weeks ago about this exact issue. She broke down the reasons why cash bail is unjust, what the alternatives are, and how we can work to change the system.

2. I Lost My Job and It Might Be the Best Worst Thing That’s Ever Happened to Me Bitches Get Riches

“So I stayed home. I chose my job over my passion.

I buried myself in work while my husband and friends savored the kind of adventure that drives my yearning for financial independence. 

And I worried that I’d made the wrong choice. 

It was the wrong choice

At the end of January, I was laid off anyway. I sacrificed the Grand Canyon for a single month of employment.”

3. Want To Move To The Country? 15 Things To Consider Frugalwoods

Moving to the sticks is all the rage right now. At least, that’s what I gather from the number of questions I’m getting about septic systems. Or, you all are just really interested in becoming rural waste management engineers. Assuming it’s the former, let’s talk about what it’s really like to live rurally.

I hope you enjoy the posts this week as much as I did. I read a ton of content and it was hard to narrow down my favorites. I’m looking forward to sharing some new ones with you again next week!

As always, if you’re looking for a categorized list of self identified women writing and speaking about personal finance, here is my comprehensive guide to the Women of the Financial Independence Community.

  1. Thank you so much for including my little story of woe! Please do keep doing Women’s Personal Finance Wednesdays.

  2. I LOVED the latest Frugalwoods post! It answered so many questions I had and probably sparked a few more. Living in the city has been challenging recently, especially watching the destruction of homes and property of people I know during the riots and looting, so her post was quite welcome to my urban mind. Nice list!
