Women & Money

Economic statistics tell a troubling story: 70% of persons living in poverty in the U.S. are women and their dependents. 43% of all U.S. women remain locked in “pink-collar” jobs. Not negotiating her first salary at the beginning of her career costs a woman $500, 000 over her lifetime. Why does this matter to a mental health counselor? Dr. Hall argues that when working with women, money should be treated not just as a symptom, but also as a cause, for without an understanding of systemic forces, therapists will pathologize women who are struggling with very real issues of discrimination. This lecture carefully explains the historical and contemporary issues that have for too long affected women´s earning power, illuminating the myriad ways in which economic systems collide with gender and race inequities to impact women´s mental health. By delving into the historical and contemporary realities of whose labor is undervalued and underpaid (or not paid at all), therapists will be much better prepared to help women navigate both structural barriers and internalized limitations.
