Written by professional women who serve as instructors at Womankind, a Boston-based collective dedicated to the ideals of feminist egalitarian economics, this valuable handbook not only covers financial basics but shows how financially savvy women can effect real changes in society. It is packed with straightforward information, as well as real-life stories, exercises, and useful charts and graphs, designed to help women change the way they think about and manage their money. It explores such important areas as:
-- Establishing and maintaining credit
-- Choosing a health plan
-- Making major purchases
-- Insuring themselves and their property
-- Preparing for retirement
-- Negotiating what you have to get what you need
-- Investing resources with an eye to personal satisfaction and community benefits

Like Our Bodies, Ourselves, Money Order has its roots in an innovative organization that works with women of all ages, backgrounds, and economic levels. It provides women with the essential tools to become financially independent and to redress social inequalities through targeted philanthropy and other economic initiatives.
