Women now make up over half of the work force. We control up to 85% of what's bought or purchased in the United States and women control 60% of the wealth. Why is it then that most women don't feel economically powerful? In fact, about 90% of women surveyed said they don't feel financially secure.
In order to make a difference and enhance the planet we need to feel comfortable with our level of influence. And in the U.S., money talks.
In this episode of See Jane Do, Elisa Parker and Jesse Locks set out to discover how women's economic influence can create positive change and the steps we need to take to feel more confident around our purchase power.
