Women face some challenging economic truths: They’re generally paid less than their male counterparts, they’re often the primary caretakers for both children and aging parents, and they’re targeted to spend on consumer goods by a culture that values material things over financial stability. Sound familiar to anyone in the LGBTQ community? So, how can we ALL build the wealth necessary to level the playing field?
