Celebrating Women’s History Month at Stash
By Stash Team
How Stash can help women overcome the financial hurdles they face.
March is Women’s History Month, and Stash is celebrating by helping women build stronger financial foundations for themselves.
Women face a unique set of financial challenges. In the U.S. They tend to earn less money than men do, ask for smaller raies, and they’re also behind on retirement savings. And as the country continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, women must still make up ground they lost during the months that shutdowns closed many businesses and curtailed worker hours, having suffered economically more than men, representing the majority of layoffs
Stash’s goal during Women’s History Month is to provide women with the tools to overcome those hurdles and build their financial lives. With that in mind, we’ve put together content especially for women, including suggestions for getting started with investing, saving for retirement, and putting together a financial plan. Plus, check out our podcast Teach Me How to Money, featuring women talking about student loans, credit, careers, and more.
Check back with us as we update this page with more stories throughout the month.
