💸 giving you actionable tools to tackle the wage, investing and board seat gaps 💸
It's hard to talk about money. We get it. So we started She Spends. Each Friday, you'll get a weekly summary of current events related to women and finance, a spotlight on women repping it in the business world, tips on how to make your money work for you and an anonymous money diary of the spending habits of one of your fellow subscribers. We've got big dreams for She Spends. We hope to not only increase financial literacy among women, but also get more women investing their cash and taking on leadership positions like board seats at major companies. Join us.

Fatimah Hussein is championing the physical activities of girls and women with her company, Asiya Modest Active Wear.
Hussein started her line of hijabs, which use breathable, sweat-wicking fabric and will stay on during a basketball game, for example, when she noticed girls and young women in her Minneapolis community, many of whom were from East Africa, weren’t participating in sports. If they were, these girls wouldn’t invite their parents to watch them play.
