Women Making Dollars and Sense
More than ever before, American families are relying on the mother’s earnings with as many as 40% depending solely on her income. And yet women still earn .70 for each dollar that a man makes in an identical position. Unsurprisingly, many moms are creating work for themselves that compensates them fairly and that supports their childrearing and caregiving responsibilities.
Held on Saturday, September 20th, this mompreneur workshop was developed to empower mothers and mothers-to-be who are interested in creating their own financial security through work that supports their mothering and provides a viable income source outside of the extractive economy.
