About the Author
Brynne Conroy started writing about money when she didn't have any. As she figured out ways to save more and earn more, she shared them with the world on her award-nominated blog--Femme Frugality--and progressively climbed up the economic ladder. Six years later, she continues to run the blog while contributing to personal finance and parenting publications both in print and on the web.
Emily Guy Birken is a former educator and lifelong money nerd who specializes in the scientific research behind irrational money behaviors. Her background in education allows her to make complex financial topics relatable and easily understood by the layperson. She is the best-selling author of four books: The Five Years Before You Retire, Choose Your Retirement, Making Social Security Work for You, and her newest title End Financial Stress Now. Her work has appeared on The Huffington Post, Business Insider, Kiplinger's, and MSN Money. She makes her home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a mechanical engineer husband, two Lego-obsessed boy-children, a retired greyhound, and a cat who likes to sit on her keyboard.
Reviews

"Brynne Conroy, founder of Femme Frugality, wrote her first book, tackling money advice from an intersectional feminist perspective. It went live everywhere books are sold yesterday. And it's awesome. The Feminist Financial Handbook: A Modern Women's Guide to a Wealthy Life provides actionable advice and knowledge from women of all walks of life, even if you're struggling today." ―MamaFishSaves

"Fun and enjoyable read. In other words, won't bore you to death!" ―WalletWiseGuy.com

"You can always find books geared toward helping women to improve their financial lives. Some are condescending mansplanations of finance, couched as an important help to us little ladies and our emotional lady-brains. Some offer pink-jacketed rah-rah enthusiasm claiming to help the modern woman have it all! Some are deep dives into the real financial difficulties and challenges facing specific groups of women. But none of them look at finance from an intersectional feminist perspective―until now. In every chapter, Brynne offers both actionable steps and hope for individual women who want to make their lives and their finances better. She offers suggestions for how to fight the unfair system while also working within the system. That means everyone who reads this book will put it down knowing ways to work for both a better world as a whole and a better life as an individual." ―Emily Guy Birken, bestselling author of End Financial Stress Now, Making Social Security Work For You, and The 5 Years Before You Retire

"The Feminist Financial Handbook is a unicorn among finance books―one that endeavors to recontextualize sensible financial basics within an acknowledgment of the myriad forms of oppression within our society. I wholeheartedly applaud Brynne Conroy in her efforts to transform both the role of the finance information world as it exists and the inequalities of the world. Brava!" ―Becca Anderson, author of The Book of Awesome Women and Badass Affirmations

"In The Feminist Financial Handbook, Brynne Conroy provides women with a comprehensive guide to living a wealthier life that contains actionable advice while not sugarcoating real issues that impact women such as the gender pay gap and the impact of divorce. This book is a valuable read." ―David Carlson author of Hustle Away Debit, Founder of Young Adult Money

"One of the leading voices in personal finance, Brynne Conroy perfectly sums up what it means to be a woman in the 21st century. Money affects every part of our lives―from the way we dress to how we can support ourselves and our families―and Conroy does a perfect job of highlighting how the pay gap, discrimination, and the motherhood penalty affect women's money differently. This is the perfect book for the modern woman looking to understand her finances on a societal level (and how to fight back.)" ―Tori Dunlap, Editor at Tomorrow Ideas

"Too often, we forget that women have very unique financial needs. The Feminist Financial Handbook remedies this problem nicely by tackling issues modern women face when planning for a secure financial future. If you're a woman struggling with the reality of money in the patriarchy, this book can help you break free and live your best financial life." ―Miranda Marquit, money expert, financial journalist, and political activist

"Conroy has done her research and given a platform to the rich and diverse experiences of womanhood and our relationship to money. This truly is the feminist financial handbook for the new wave of intersectional feminism." ―Erin Lowry, author of Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together

"Conroy goes beyond blanket, modern-
